well, it ran way too choppy for me to get a good look at things. i played a few levels, tho (how i completed levels, i don't know), and it was fun in the top-down mode (3d mode was pretty confusing to me). it really didn't feel like asteroids™ movement, tho. is there drift, etc? otherwise, the particles killed my FPS and i think i saw asteroids spawn out of the middle of nowhere once or twice (the one time i remember, my FPS dropped to ~10 before they showed. no particles around to cause the FPS drop so, dunno...). also, in top-down mode, the thrust trails go "down" (below the ship) instead of behind it, i think. and, i won't rehash the bugs you already mentioned in the readme.
thanks for sharing
: replayed it and remembered one other bug. i think you know it already but the ship can outrun the laser shot. and, yeah, there is "drift". i also noted that the particles weren't so much causing the lag as i thought. maybe it's collision or something else.
