Exploding Instances is two single stop scripts that allows an instance to be exploded into smaller pieces. One is a simpler version for instances that do not rotate such as backdrop pieces while the other is for anything that rotates such as spaceships in order to spice up your explosions.
You can control the size of each chunk and the speeds that the parts fly away from the instance.
Added a script for an angled explosion, note that this currently only works with a centered sprite.

A nice change from explosion animations.
Seeing the alien ships you destroy exploding into lots of peices is a nice change from just using explosion animations. However, for large sprites, this effect looks best when the image to be exploded isn't rotated as the formulas are based on non-rotated sprites. If there were additional scripts for rotated sprites I would up the review to 5 stars.
Thanks for the review Andrew, I'll see what I can do about a rotated effect for you.
