As a diversion for a slow work day yesterday afternoon I wrote this sample game just for fun in 3-4 hours with Astrosmash as the inspiration.  I know Bob's Meteor shower is already a great homage to the original game and I have no intention of making this into a complete game, but I thought it would be useful to share it as another sample game for 7800basic.  Anyone is free to re-use the code and graphics for their own game.  Asteroids fly down from the top of the screen, you can shoot them and will get 10 points for each.  The game is endless, you can't die.  I also included the tmx file that makes the screen map in the gfx zip file.  You can use Tiled to create background screens very quickly, it's a very useful tool.

Well done. An excellent result for a few hours of work!

Atarius Maximus has offered this for inclusion with the official 7800basic samples, and I'll be taking him up on that. :thumbsup:

Thanks for sharing this Atarius.  This example actually provides answers to one or two questions I'd been trying to form.  Great work!

Great!  That's exactly why I shared this sample, I'm glad it helped.
