Nice but suggestions adapting some changes

Game is FREAKING #%^= AWESOME !!! Music is awesome !!! However upgraded visual theme ... those asteroidical rocks reminds me the good o' morning cereal box of coco puffs? Game fire appears to lag ... Here are another suggestion controls are over lapping really gets annoying visually should move out little more or perhaps play eternal warrior 2 see their joystick concept. I think after its worth putting type V to ur settings console for the suggested control. Then enhance full sceen because those chunkie coco puffs are way out of proportional playability vs manuvering room ... Atari astroid is awesome too just perfectly balanced. ... Thats 0.99 cents of good advise n keep up the awesome coding! :).

Game control really lags after level 3 hard to fire compare to level 1. Noticeably after toggling in n out of game brief moment seems to help restoring fire on demand.

Invasion really ... I dont see the creativity there thats like eating 10 pcs chicken nuggets with coco puffs on dinner time...

Throttle sticks

U should avoid asking to write review knowing. Bugs exists in ur conscious put that in to pride before anything... Reviews automatically rewards when consumer knows u did an awesome work that is reputation ...

Retro coolness!

If you're a fan of Asteroids, then this will fill your old school gaming crave. It's cool, has beautiful visuals, a cool sound track, decent touch controls, fun power-ups and is a great modern take on a classic arcade game. I recommend playing the game on "normal" setting. The default is "easy", which is a bit too easy. Total cool, mellow start to the game and gets harder at a good pace. If you want a longer, easy going gaming session, play on "easy". Whatever way you play, the game looks great, sounds great and is loads of fun!

Game player

This game reminds me of the original game I used to play in the 80's in the arcades. Retro but modern, very cool and a lot of fun. To the creators.. Well done!
