This paper describes a practical exercise set to an introductory functional programming course. The exercise is to implement a small game involving a space ship in an asteroids belt, after the fashion of the classic Asteroids arcade game. The positive experience suggests that interactive graphics programs of this kind make good and entertaining programming exercises for functional programming courses.
