Hey! I am working on an Asteroids like game. I have all the game play set up and it is quite fun. It is the same basic idea as the original but with my own twist on the actual game play. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for a different theme instead of just a little triangle that shoots lines at wireframe asteroids haha... I'm really open to anything and I am having a hard time coming up with new theme ideas. It can still be a space theme but just hoping I could get some ideas as I am about to start working on new graphics for it. Thanks!

This may not be the correct place for this type of question but if you know of a better forum for this question that would be great too!

Asteroids Tower Defense.  You play as the asteroids.  Equip them with weapons that shoot back.

Mmmmkay maybe not.

Atom Smasher

Instead of asteroids, make them atoms. As you fire electrons at them, they split when the # of electrons exceed a certain value. Based on number of protons and number of electrons each atom can have a 'charge' which effects how it interacts with other atoms. So, the whole system is based on a 2D gravity physics. Just like the original asteroids, you can have an enemy ship that comes out and shoots protons, which would destroy your 'Atom Smasher' ship and effect the paths of the atoms. Or, you could just have rogue protons that drift through from time to time. You could have enemy ships/particles that come out, hover for a few seconds, then emit a gravity wave. Maybe when the atom get's small enough and you hit it for the last time, it leaves an 'energy particle' behind that you must collect before another atom 'consumes' it. After you have collected enough energy particles, use them to create a black hole and 'warp' to the next level.

Hmmmm, maybe I'll write my own version.

@EddieRich Wow thanks for your thoughts! I really appreciate it. I like a lot of the different ideas you had for that! That sounds like a pretty cool theme for sure and the actual game play isn't really that much different either. I had another idea from someone that had said maybe a water based theme where you move around in a boat and shoot some sort of enemies... but this idea is pretty original and I think it would be really cool. It is definitely a possibility!
