AstroSmash

Astrosmash is a video game for the Intellivision videogame console, designed by John Sohl, and released by Mattel Electronics in 1981. The game involves using a laser cannon to destroy falling meteors, bombs, and other targets. More than one million copies were sold, and the game replaced Las Vegas Poker & Blackjack as the game included with the Intellivision console. - Wikipedia.

This is my port of AstroSmash from Java ME (J2ME) MIDlet to Android OS application with using SurfaceView Canvas drawing. I added touch controls and some game engine improvements. I used the Java Decompiler to understand the logic and restore the behavior of the original game.
