:: Astro-Mines ::

Created back in 2004, I believe was the 3rd game I coded with BlitzBasic (which later became BlitzPlus for those who know it by that name instead). Quite obviously inspired by coin-op classics such as Sinistar, you are a space pirate penetrating secured asteroid mines to collect valuable blue crystals for money. In hot pursuit are zone destroyer ships that will try to take you out. Watch out for the area harvester ships that will try take your crystals. Destroy both of these ships to collect fuel canisters as they are a necessity to keep your shields up and your ship supplied with power. Avoid bombs destroyed ships may leave behind, they take away a large amount of your ships power! Some ships may leave money behind (dollar signs) when destroyed, collect these for extra income points! Just keep an eye on your power cells in the lower right corner, if your power runs out its game over! How much money can you make?
