Hi everybody

Gtroids is a classic arcade shooter.
I used it as a learning project to come up to speed in java and learn basics in game programming.
I know, there are thousands of Asteroids clones around.
But be sure, it's more than just a simple clone.
Unlike to the original game, you can enhance the ships abilities with bonus items like multi-shot (up to 4) or shield.
You are able to throw smartbombs (or get more of them), cure yourself,
enhance the points factor, control the game speed (with bonus items), fight against boss enemies and much more.
Furthermore, it has a global highscore list.
Hope you enjoy it!

Play it now: http://www.planet-h.com/gtroids/

have fun
and thanks for comments, gal

You are right about it - it is not classic arcade shooter. I mean, it is, but you can feel a lot of good work was put there.
Keep up, I liked it. Physics is the best IMO.
p.s. I prefer webstart, not applets. If you could webstart Gtroids, it would be great!

Now the whole thing is done.
I upped the final release and the javadoc.
http://www.planet-h.com/gtroids/

There is also cheatmodule.
It was just a helper for development but if someone wants to check it out ...
Type the word "log" while holding the left ALT key (this toggles the logpane on or off)
If the log is open, type the word "cheats" while holding the left ALT key (this should show the complete cheatlist)
You'll find all common cheats like godmode, powerups, etc.
All the cheats must be typed with the left ALT key pressed
If you run the game as applet, make sure that the game is focused (border turns red, if it is)

If you use cheatcodes during a game, the current score gets blocked by the highscore module.
