I wasn't going to post any, but I got a good one!

- Allegro Rocks

Ok here's some more off the top of my head:

- Dirtballs
- Space Balls (ok I may get sued for that one too)

2012: Odd C++ Space Game

Heh.

If I use the 2012 thing, I fear their attorney (the guy who emailed me back) may reprimand me. :(... but I'll still consider it. :P

Alex the Allegator (sic) in the ship would be sort of cool.

I don't think a top down view would be recognizable. He could be put in the UFO easily though, but then the name doesn't work without modification.

Perspective doesn't matter.

Yes it does. Try rotating that 360 degrees. :P

Zelda isn't an overhead view. It's 3/4.

Rotate the screen. 8-)

That's a pretty good idea. Don't like the name relating to Asteroids at all though, just to be safe.

Then there may be issues with Space Miner. I note their app on the app store has a fat ™ in the name. It's not a ® though.

They don't have to be rocks, they could be fragments of a wrecked spaceship or something.

They have to be rocks, unless you can draw something else that looks just as good as the ones in the current demo.

What if the spaceship was made of rocks?

EDIT: Er...I didn't notice page 5. A nice dosage of context.

Programming should be fun. That's why I hate Java.

Once I get some suggestions, I'll pick 3-5 and get people to vote on them

\o/ New vote on main page!
Edit: Let's see if I can come up with at least one serious name. I like "Allegro (5) Rocks". "Debris Buster" has a nice ring to it IMHO.

Hmmm, how about... Minecraft! XD OR... Space Craft.

Space Prospector (or Space Prospects)

Cosmic Salvage

Cosmic Prospector (that has a certain ring to it)

Or sometimes simpler names are best, "Cosmic" if it isn't already in use.

Meteortari Blasteriods.

Or, just Meteor Blaster.

I vote Cosmic Protector.

EDIT: Does Cosmic Defender have a better tune?

Cosmic Defender sounds ok too but you're too late! Besides that, it sort of sounds more like a "war" game, where in the demo you're protecting not really defending (except maybe the ufos).

NiteHackr

Cosmic Protector doesn't sound like any other game that I can think of of that type, so it gets my vote.

Notice it doesn't even have the letter 'A' in it anywhere either. ;)

Yes, but it does have an E, O, R, S and even a T!

Oh, there's a vote post. I vote "Allegro Rocks". [Suddenly everybody changes his mind about voting "Allegro Rocks" ;D ]
