Nice game, works fine on Lubuntu 1104 64. If you don't mind, I have few words about the code.
1) Especially since you're coding with Py27 (although it works fine with 26 too), you can use Ternary Conditonal Operation for less lines and a bit faster code. Lines 31-34 can be replaced with §return asteroid_dict if asteroid.lower() == 'dict' else asteroid_dict[asteroid]§ or §return (asteroid_dict if asteroid.lower() == 'dict' else asteroid_dict[asteroid])§ depending on which is clearer to you.
1) Lines 165-170 are replacable like in the main file above.
2) Line 282: always use §print§ as a function like §print()§, to be compatible with Py3.
1) Line 56: always use §print§ as a function like §print()§, to be compatible with Py3.
And a feature request: depending on the asteroid's size, you can either take many hits or few hits or one hit before blowing up; in respect of small, medium and large asteroid. If you implement this, of course a health meter is almost a must.

Thank you for the advice. I REALLY appreciate the input about the code. I am going to change that asap.
Also, I appreciate the advice on functionality, and I love the
suggestion. My wife actually commented that it's weird that the smaller
rocks are just as destructive as the biggest rocks. So, I am going to
implement shield power (ie health bar), and different damage depending
on rock size.
Thanks again for your input! Hopefully I'll have the new version up as soon as I get some free time to add those things.

No matter what version of Cargo Carrier I try, I get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "cargo_carrier.pyw", line 555, in <module>
if __name__ == '__main__': main(1, 9999, 40)
File "cargo_carrier.pyw", line 302, in main
icon = ccfuncs.load_image('data/icon.ico', True)
File "C:\Documents and Settings\zimmeb5\My Documents\Downloads\Cargo_Carrier\ccfuncs.py", line 292, in load_image
image = pygame.image.load(file_name)
pygame.error: Unsupported image format
Is there something I need to get Pygame to display .ico images?

It'll work out-of-box, meaning there's something wrong with either your system or the file.
Brian Zimmerman 2011-09-20 21:20:33
Yes, I'm sure it is a problem with my system. It might be that I am using Python2.5 on windows, I need to because I can't get pygame running with python27in windows (I don't have this problem with Linux). I saved icon.ico as icon.png with GIMP, and changed line 302 in cargo_carrier.py to read data/icon.png, and everything works great. Hurray for open source, and thanks for a really fun game!
g30c0d3r 2011-09-20 22:17:07
Thanks, I went ahead and changed this in the main project as well that way others don't run into the same issue. The icon is now a PNG.

By the way, in case anyone was curious, I was able to get Pygame working with Python 2.7 in Windows, ran the original cargo_carrier and had no problems, so somehow .ico image format does not always work in Pygame pygame-1.9.1release.win32-py2.5.exe

- Hardcore mode. You die once, you start from the beginning like you started for first time.
- Total n00b mode. You can't die and you can shoot like there's no end.
I think there are too many asteroids at once.
