Description
Release date: Early 2017
With the same basic controls as the classic, you must learn to navigate and fight with inertia ever present. Solaroids: Prologue is not a game for the twin-stick junkie. You’ll need to evolve or perish trying. Take complete control of your vessel, amass advanced weaponry, and take back the stars…

Features
Currently available features include:
  • Classic Asteroids® game play
  • Huge wrapping arena
  • Power-ups and new threats unlocked throughout the levels
  • Various bosses
  • Customize player ship colors
  • Damage system
  • Forward and reverse thrusters
  • Progressive difficulty
  • Continuous leveling
  • Up to 4 local players
    • Join at any time
    • Unlimited credits
    • Cooperative or not - you decide
ADDITIONAL FEATURES ARE IN DEVELOPMENT!!! - Let me know what you would like to see!

Familiar Yet Refreshed Controls
With controls similar to the original, learn to pilot your craft using the enhanced precision of an analog thumbstick and triggers in order to carefully regulate the amount of thrust necessary to intercept or evade incoming threats.

Power-Ups & Tokens
Equipped with an upgradable primary weapon and slots for optional secondary and defensive weapons that can be discovered as the game progresses.

Various power-ups are unlocked the longer you play:
  • Level 1 – Shields
  • Level 2 – Rapid Fire & Enhance Turn Speed
  • Level 3 – Outriders
  • Level 4 – Burst
  • Level 5 – Atomic
  • Level 6 – Missiles, Enhanced Main Cannon Speed
  • Level 7 – Sonic Boom, Enhanced Main Cannon Damage
Various token “freebies” are unlocked as you progress:
  • Level 1 – Repair, Volume +/-, & Change Music Track
  • Level 2 – Bonus Ships

Local Cooperative Play
If a couple of your mates walk in, have them join in the fun. No need to leave the game to add players, as they can join in at any time. Just connect another controller, optionally customize the color scheme, and pow… your in! Someone needs to drop out for a while, just don’t continue and the game will be forfeit. No worries.

Someone take your loot, or fire a little too close for comfort… Pop of a few rounds to let them know who’s boss and that it’s not appreciated. Nobody’s gonna stop you!

I love the music even though I'm not good at the game. Now you have even more power-ups and the visuals are amazing. I hope this makes it past Greenlight so I can add it to my collection. Otherwise I'll be driving over to your house everytime I want to play

@ korablev I have many ideas for more weapons, upgrades, and threats if I can get off the ground with "Prologue". I'm very interested in ideas from players as well!
