In Pongeroids! you shoot asteroids that break into smaller asteroids, as in Asteroids. The game takes place inside of a cube, and both the asteroids and the player's shots bounce off of the walls instead of wrapping around to the other sides of the screen, kind of link Pong. The ship can move in three dimensions and pivot around the X, Y, and Z axes. Because the game has a first-person perspective, asteroids can be outside of the player's field of vision, behind the ship. To make it easier, the ship has shields which are depleted when hit by asteroids or the shots from the player's cube gun. Bigger impacts take more energy from the shields. One out of 20 asteroids is dark blue and slowly shrinking. Blue asteroids replenish the player's shields, with the amount of energy restored based on the size of the asteroid when it's collected.
