Welcome, Cadets

Scorpion X7 game splashscreen

What is it?


It's a game inspired by a very old game from about 35 years ago or more, named "Asteroids". Wikipedia puts it as an arcade space shooter released in 1979 by Atari. Ah the good old times! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteroids_(video_game)
 

You control your spaceship, and the only way is forward, or turn. No brakes in space. Oh and there are a bunch of asteroids flying around too. They're not your friends. So get busy blasting them.

Important: Be sure to save the file and scan it once more through your antivirus. Never trust downloaded files, especially executable (.exe) files, even if you trust the person who is offering it. After all, if the site's server had been hacked, the file could have been tampered with. So, always be on the safe side, scan your downloads with a good, up-to-date antivirus. We do the same, every time, no exceptions. But also be aware that there might be false positive detections - false alarms.
If you need help with this, don't hesitate to ask us.

This is a free game made just for fun, and for good old time's sake. If you remember or recognize this game, you are either an avid retro gamer, or you might be a baby boomer :-)  Either way, this game's for you - enjoy!

 

This game was written in VB and GDI+

We designed the new API for Dogwaffle so that parts of it could be torn off and used in external programs.  That's how we did those recent plugins without actually having the new Howler with the new API out there yet.


game over
