Game Icon for Alpha-beta Asteroids

Alpha-beta Asteroidsby Games By Candlelight


An exciting word game with an out of this world space theme! Spell words to remove tiles, causing asteroids to drop. Stars are awarded for dropping asteroids, long words, and bonus play.

Blast off into outer space by collecting stars. Spell words to drop asteroids, which rewards you with a number of stars. Bigger drops and longer words gives you more stars.

In later missions, Comet Bonuses gives you the chance to earn 10 times the amount of stars, but you must act fast! If you do not clear the asteroid within 30 seconds, the asteroid is destroyed and you lose all bonus points!

Collect enough stars to advance to the next mission. Each mission gets more difficult.

There are 40 levels of play… 8 planets, each with 5 missions. Share your scores with Facebook and Twitter. Achievements and Leaderboards are also available

How did TexturePacker help you with your development?

I used TP to pack all images in the game into multiple image sheets based on each scene in Corona. I am utilizing the @2 and @4 image sheets as well.

What are your favorite TexturePacker features?

Any tips and tricks you want to share with the community?

I like to use multiple image sheets based on scenes in order to limit the amount of memory used. Larger sheets use more memory and there may be images in those sheets that are not needed during the game, since the user did not go to that scene.
