Variations on Rockdodger (VoR) is a quick little game where you guide a space-ship through an asteroid field.
Note: This is a fairly hard game, intended to be a quickie game for when you want to kill a few spare minutes. For reference, my best time [Josh Grams] is about 2 minutes in version 0.3. I'm not generally very good at video games, but I have been playing this one for quite a while now. However, you can make it substantially easier by slowing the game down. New in version 0.3, we have a command-line option --game-speed=N%. New players may like to try it at 0.75 or even 0.66.
What's New in This Release:
Added an easy mode (Press 'e' for an easy game).
Rocks are now totally solid (they bounce off each other and get pushed by your jets).
Fixed placement of new ships so you're less likely to die multiple times.
Added explanatory message at game over.
