Asteroid Rage

Asteroid Rage is an awesome arcade style shooting game for iPhone and iPod Touch. I did all the artwork and sound editing for the game, including logos, icons, backgrounds, objects, sprites and interfaces, as well as layering the music and picking sound effects. I also created the accompanying website and epic promotional trailer, which has explosions. My aim was to capture the feel of old 2D shooting games, while bringing the graphics more in line with modern technology.

While I generally prefer a minimalist aesthetic, I couldn't resist a chance to go a little bit over the top.
I created a few different wallpapers for Asteroid Rage, which appear during loading and menu screens.
These are but a sample of the total number of sprite based animations created for Asteroid Rage.
Hot Tip: The baddie appears approximately every 90 seconds.
