Educational Points

Learn about asteroid composition, mass, and size.

  • Asteroids come in various types, metallic, gravel, rock, and ice.
  • Utilize 5 different types of asteroid deflection and destruction.
  • Master the different techniques for solving incomming asteroid collisions.

User Interaction

Two users can play via standing at specific positions near the console. Using the kinect players can wave their outside arm to aim and use the inside arm to press one of five buttons (five buttons for each player)

Each of the five buttons activate various different asteroid deflection techniques.
  • Kinetic Impactor
  • Ablative Laser
  • Swarm Bots
  • Solar Sail
  • Nuclear Bomb

User Experience

Players will get to protect the Earth from a never ending onslaught of various different asteroids. Figuring out which deflection techniques is best against the different asteroids and in different situations.

  • Kinetic Impactor is great against heavy and rigid targets
  • Ablative Laser is great against fragile and light targets
  • Solar Sail is really effective if deployed early
  • Swarm bots are effective at slowing huge crowds
  • Nuclear bomb can be disastrous in causing fractures and should only be used as a last resort

Hold Time Data

Average hold times are 3.5 mins. Guests will then get back in line to wait to play again.
