As a quick way to get to know the LibGDX (Java framemork), I followed some tutorials on YouTube. Amongst others this playlist from ForeignGuyMike In which he recreates the classic Asteroids game.
This is my result after following his tutorial and adding my own power-ups to the game.
- Control the spaceship with the arrow keys ←→↑↓ or WASD
- Shoot with space
- Pause game with P
- Diamond gives bonus points
- Ammunition makes you shoot faster for a limited time
- Shield protects the ship from the next hit
