AsteroidsQC is intended as a developer example, using Quartz Composer as a game prototyping tool. AsteroidsQC currently requires you have OS X Tiger (10.4.x) or above installed, as well as Quartz Composer (available as part of Apple's free developer tools).
The file is a fully playable, raster version of the classic 1979 Asteroids game by Atari. I've tried to keep to the original game-play, so watch out for the small saucers - they can be crafty little sods ;-) Quartz Composer doesn't have any sound playback ability so this is currently a mute example.
I plan to wrap this QC file in a regular Cocoa app bundle and add the sound from that side. Have fun, let me know what you think.
