Features:
-Multithreaded asteroid rendering
-Physics engine
-Scripting

TAsteroids is a clone of the classic arcade game asteroids. It has an integrated physics engine and your ship won't explode instantly if you hit an asteroid. That makes collisions more fun!
The graphics engine is basically a fork of my game Battleship.
Keys:
Player 1: Arrow Keys, DEL, ENTER
Player 2: WAD, F, G
Toggle fullscreen: F11

Requires Qt 4.5 or greater, SDL and SDL_mixer.
To build on ubuntu, you may need
sudo apt-get install libsdl-mixer1.2-dev
The project uses the following qt libraries: opengl, script, svg and concurrent.

Some game specific code is written in QtScript. If you don't like the default keys you need to edit the control.js script.

* version 0.6.1
- fixed a bug under Qt 4.7: ugly pink backgrounds
- removed version 0.3 download

* version 0.6
- fullscreen
Use F11 to toggle fullscreen
- highscores
- some game mechanics changed
- licence changed to LGPL

* version 0.5:
- colored asteroids: the game colorizes the asteroids during gameplay for the next level in a seperate thread
- sound integration via sdl: sounds are embedded as resources and copied to the temp directory
- fixed the 3D-asteroid rendering bug in the game menu on Windows. The 3D-asteroid can be freely zoomed and resized.
- about every 40s an UFO appears from a wormhole

* version 0.4:
- Box2D integrated
- this physics engine manages all collision detection now
- ships do not longer destroy asteroids if they collide, instead they bounce off and lose some hitpoints
- new background stars
- replaced the menu-asteroid QGV with a QGLWidget. The white rectangle vanished but the asteroid still isn't properly shown on Qt 4.6

* new sourcecode without OpenGL
- there's a new sourcecode for systems that don't support OpenGl

* version 0.3:
- added menu
- single player and 2 player mode
- restart function (F4)
- players can activate "wormhole" (Keys: Enter and F) and "shield" (Keys: G and Del)
- resized projectiles and asteroids because the small ones were hard to hit

known bugs:
- there might be just a white rectangle instead of the wireframe asteroid model in the menu but the game is still playable though, this is just a beauty issue

* version 0.0
-first beta release

Sounds are already there but I'm still looking for a cross-platform way to play sounds. Yes there's QSound but it's NAS backend doesn't seem to be working on any linux system, including my Ubuntu 8.04.

Graphics and motion are excellent, as is the missile fire.

Collision with the asteroids - the ship should explode and re-materialise at start.

Sound would be good :)

Other than that an excellent start, very playable.
