So glad this was updated with 64-bit compatibility!! Thanks, decks!

Graphics and gameplay keeps me coming back to this one-glad I'll be able to continue to keep it as a staple game on all my devices!

64-bit compatibility = five stars!


Nice to know some developers care! Classic iOS game by the way!



Anybody that grew up playing Asteroids will get this. The graphics are top notch: really setting off what the iPads can do. The game play is fast paced and exciting-- not a sleeper at all! It seems simple, at first, but it is beautifully so-- the controls are easy, it may take a minute to get used to the orientation while playing, but this game is so much fun, I can't stop playing it (even if I'm not that good). The sound effects, explosions, etc are not " tinny" sounding: like some games when things go boom it's kinda lame, right? This one I can't wait to try it over the home stereo, as when the rocks explode, it sounds like a rock exploding, even in headphones! Everything about this is top notch, IMHO. Best game I've purchased since infinity blade one and two. Demo it and see what you think: two bucks unlocks everything, the missions, smart bombs (oh god are those FUN!) the whole deal. Bravo-- I feel like a kid all over again!
