Actually it was a Boulderdash-like 2d scroller originally named "Astra Down to Earth", which I had nostalgia for. Uses GTK+-2.0, gtkglext-1.0 and OpenGL, written in C.
Instructions: Your mission is to rid the Universe of hostile alien cyborgs so that the planned Intergalactic Bypass can finally be completed. You control a limited number of Astra-dozers and must clear all 30 star systems and planets you visit. Your 'dozer is fitted with the latest anti-grav field as are its extras (fuel, crates of bombs and spare 'dozers). The aliens come in two forms. Trigons which are unpredictable in large numbers and Circsaws which are smarter and more volatile since they explode on contact with bombs, crates, spare 'dozers and Conenabs. Conenabs expand and detonate either under their own weight or due to incarceration. Good luck!
