3-D JAsteroids


You are the little white ship at the center of the cube. Use the controls listed above to navigate in 3D-space and shoot the asteroids. Use the radar (side and top) on the bottom right and the ship's-eye view (bottom left) to help determine where you are. Note that when asteroids (and your ship) leave one side of the cube, they return on the opposite side. Watch your energy...shields, thrusting and firing uses up energy. Hitting an asteroid adds to your score (smaller asteroids are worth more) and splits larger asteroids into multiple smaller ones. When you destroy them all you move onto the next round, which is harder. You get a total of 3 lives, but gain additional lives when you score a multiple of 10000. It's that simple!  If you're using IE, you need to click the mouse in the game area (not on a button) after you start a game!

Keyboard Controls:
Rotate= UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT arrows or 2/4/6/8 | Fire= Space bar or M |
Thrust Forward= A | Retro-thrusters= Z | Shields= S

If you don't see the applet here, you need to update your browser.
Mouse Controls:
  • The 3 buttons navigate in different directions.
  • Most useful is the middle button which rotates the game.
  • The START button begins the game; PAUSE pauses it.
  • END GAME ends the current game.
  • SHIP'S-EYE turns on/off the small ship's-perspective view. Position asteroids in the crosshairs to aim.
