Using bitwise operation and bitmasks to map every ascii char to an array of 8 integers
Woohoo! I made a working asteroids game!
But holy crap did I make it hard.
Not only the wonky controls (maybe having a ship graphic will fix that?), but just the insane amount of asteroids that suffocate you from the get-go. Good luck winning this!
I will make graphics for this (rocky irregular circles for asteroids, and a shippy shape for the ship sorta like original asteroids), but resources can't be included in jsfiddle, so I'll post a link to it when I finish it.
