Vectorpods 2

Vectorpods 2

pymike (pymike)



So I played Ian Mallett's "Asteroids 2: The Vector" game, and I decided I HAD to make an Asteroids game this morning. The entire game was made in three hours, and its only one file! Some of the trigonometry scripts included in this game were made by Ian, so very special thanks to him. Have fun!


  • Left and right arrows to move
  • Up and down arrows to accelerate
  • Spacebar to shoot

You might wanna start using proper version numbering? =p
Game's cool anyway! Is there any way you could make the asteroids look less alike?

Indeed, the pygame version packaged in my Linux distribution (Fedora 7) is still 1.7.x.
But the fix is working, thanks.

UFOs make the game harder than before... I think it's time to implement a shield functionality for our ship ;)

Whoops! Sorry about that! That's a new feature in pygame 1.8. You can install the latest pygame release from here: or change that line to "clock.tick(60)".
