:: Astro-Blaster 3D\Classic ::

This game was the second game of three different remakes of the classic Asteroids. It very closely resembles the arcade classic with the vector style graphics. Back in 2009, this game was an experiment as I attempted to perfect anaglyph 3D image rendering. After several hours of coding experiments and several blending techniques, I had discovered 'light blending' was the way to go. Oddly enough the images were always somewhat transparent giving them a hologram effect, which in the end I thought was kind of interesting. So I rolled with it, and it became a framework for future 3D games. Thus, later spawning several anaglyph 3D games for the H+Soft Arcade project. This game is quite fun to look at as it features a recessed back drop and several layers of 3D stars giving it a lot of depth. Once again, if you're wondering about the slashed title of this game, please see Astro-Blaster 3D Extreme.
