Asteroids Shooting Game
If you are feeling nostalgic for old school, coin-op like, blasting action then Alsteroids should give your trigger finger a work out!
HOW TO PLAY:
This is an endless shooter. Your objective is simple - stay alive as long as possible by shooting and avoiding wave after wave of asteroids ... your reward: a high score and bragging rights on the Game Centre leader boards.
Your ship can be rotated through 360 degrees and can fire photon torpedoes (up to four on screen at a time). Large asteroids can be broken into two medium size ones, which in turn can be shot into two smaller ones. A wave is over when all asteroids have been cleared.
Beware of the saucers! The large type are easy to hit and fire inaccurately, the smaller saucers are a different story... they move faster, are harder to hit and also become devastatingly accurate as the game progresses.
You can use your ships thrusters to move out of the way of an incoming asteroid. Be careful of thrusting too much as there is no inertia in space and you will have to correct your trajectory to stop!
If you find yourself in a no-win situation, you can hit Hyperspace - this will transport your ship to a random position on screen. Hyperspace is a dangerous option as your ship can transported into an asteroid. Also the drive fitted to your ship is a prototype - it has an annoying tendency to randomly blow up.

Ratings and Reviews
Let’s just say you guys did a super fantastic job of recreating Asteroids. I mean, I am a Gen X’r here, and this is the game I grew up with where my Mom would take me clothes shopping for school, give me four quarters and leave me alone in the front of the store next to a bunch of arcade games for 2 hours. So this is one of the first arcade games I played as a little guy. While I would hate clothes shopping for school, I always looked forward to playing the original Asteroids. It was incredible, simple and never got boring. Your re-creation of this game takes us back to those days where we could delve into the simple stick figure arcade generation and truly feel the nostalgic charm of this iconic masterpiece. What separates this particular game for iOS apart from many other Asteroid remakes is the fluidity and attention to original detail. It’s soooooo smooth feeling EXACTLY like the original arcade game. Kudos, looking forward to more of your games. To the developer, never forget this niche as it is truly remarkable how you have not only provided a great game but can take people back to the time they remember as a kid. Great Job.
OMG!!!! AMAZING JOB DEVELOPERS A+++++
OK I was just so hesitant to download this as all these retro style 80s arcade games are horrible… These guys deserve a raise LOL I was blown away at the fluidity and ease of playing this game on my iPhone XS MAX! The movement the tiny little details of the spaceship and the smoke when you’re a little battleship guy moves is awesome… Although it is hard to get used to if you don’t have some sort of Bluetooth controller but I can see this being more popular on the iPad but I am blown away at the graphics and how nice and easy this is to play… People that aren’t into retro games may not like this but I am from the 80s goingTo the arcade’s after school and playing all these games… Good job developers maybe you can come out with a real donkey Kong Junior… A beefed up donkey Kong… Please come out with Crystal castles… Missile command… Anyhow I hope everyone enjoys this game like I did
Yes, this is the one.
Put simply, this is the absolute best version of the classic “Asteroids” that I have ever played, and I’ve tried many.
Eye-popping vector-style graphics, authentic sound effects, and a variety of different control options make this the king of “Asteroids” clones.
I have the original Asteroids in an arcade cabinet in my home. Same game I played as a nine year old kid in 1979. This might be better. Try it out for free, and you’ll gladly throw the developer .99¢. And that’s just what it costs to get rid of the ads. Well worth it.
Download this, and support this developer. We want him making more classic games like this!
