Astrorocks is a classic Asteroids game written in EGSL by Markus Mangold.

Target of the game is to destroy every asteroid flying around the screen. You get difficulties through the broken asteroids, as they split into several small rocks, which you then have to destroy too.

Over the menu you can start the game (Space bar).

Playing the game is very simple, moving and rotating the spaceship over the playground using the keyboard. To shoot you need the keyboard too.


  • up = move the ship
  • left and right = rotating the ship
  • left shift = fire
