Feature Highlight:

  • Many types of asteroids and space rocks to keep you on your toes
  • Collect and buy upgrades for your ship as you go
  • Unlockable ships offer new challenges
  • Arcade-inspired gameplay brought into the modern era

About what I expected in an Asteroids styled game. Simple controls, easy to get into and somewhat of a challenge to master. The little differences and new bits added in give it a good feel, like unlocking different ships and the upgrade system. It's also another game made with the FOSS game engine Godot Engine, always nice to see more.

Overall, it's a solid arcade-style game built upon the foundation that Asteroids left us with. It has some slick tunes, game-play that's fun if you like retro experiences tuned a little and worth a shot. A perfect example of a coffee-break game done right, pick it up with a gamepad and have a blast when you need a little downtime and you won't be sorry you did so.

You can find Rogue Rocks on and Steam.
