If it happens so that you are not familiar with the Asteroids-like game, briefly outline for you the situation: driving a small ship, you must destroy giant space rocks, simultaneously in all possible ways avoiding collision with them. The difficulty is that large asteroids after your attacks split into smaller ones – into smaller, and so as long as they are not will only have a handful of dust.
