Spaceship vs Asteroids Game: SPOD
After more than 20 years Marten Wobst has reactivated his Amiga 500. In celebration of the day he has written a little game called SPOD (Space Pilot of Death).


The game principle ist very simple: you're supposed to avoid all asteroids approaching the spaceship. Otherwise your shield gets lower and finally the spaceship crashes. By releasing this game, Marten was also going to reactivate his knowlegde on programming. The game is written in assembler and runs on any Amiga 500. It can be played with a joystick but also with the cursor keys (contrary to the Readme, the space key is not needed). The longer your spaceship survices the more points you get which maybe results in an entry in the highscore.

Marten has described his game "more of a fast Joystick test" than a complete game:
"I was going to write something simple within a reasonable period of time and I wanted to check if I can make it on an Amiga 500 without accelerator boards. In restrospect I am really surprised what an ordinary Amiga 500 can technically perform. I have not perfectly programmed my game, much more is possible."

Currently he is playing around with assembler programming, implementing some issues more perfect. But it is hobby and should be fun. We really enjoyed the game and therefore keep our fingers crossed that Marten will also go on enjoying his hobby. (dr) (Translation: dr)
