It never ceases to amaze me how much functionality you can pack into a tiny file with Flash. I started out writing a test for generating random asteroids, and it blossomed into a full-fledged game. Doom III it is not, but considering it’s less than 1kb in size (1020 bytes [UPDATE 04/24] now down to 1007 bytes), I think it’s pretty impressive, having time, points, levels, bonuses and penalties.
Game play is simple: Shoot (click) all of the asteroids before time runs out to progress to the next level. You’ll want to be fast and accurate – you get time bonuses at the end of each level, and are penalized for missed shots. Have fun, and post your best score / level in the comments below.
It was surprisingly fun and interesting building this game and fighting for every last byte. Has anyone else built any cool tiny games or projects they’d like to share?
