Rocket is a great, yet simple game. It runs smoothly with good graphics for non-grayscale. You control the (rocket) ship at the bottom and try to avoid the asteroids that come flying your way. This may sound easy, but it is not as easy as you think. The real fun and challenge comes from the way that your ship moves. It moves on an inertia system, so if you tap left you will accelerate left and wont stop until you hit the wall and bounce back, or hit right to change your direction. If you go too fast in one direction you will find it hard to turn around quickly and thus hard to avoid the asteroids. Luckily, your rocket comes equipped with a harpoon gun that stops time as it travels. It will destroy parts of asteroids, but if it hits the edge of the screen it will bounce back and become another obstacle for you to avoid... As you pick up ammo crates, your reload time is decreased, allowing you to fire more harpoons. And if you get enough ammo crates your harpoon is upgraded to a missile that demolishes the ever-growing asteroids that come flying your way.

This is a game that is worth downloading, and is perfect for a little free time during class.
