What do people who've played it have to say about Battle for Vesta?
MacWorld says, "the graphics are buttery smooth... the controls are simple and intuitive... Battle for Vesta offers up solid space combat"
"This is just a sweet little space shooter with an early 80's retro feel. I really got sucked into the game to the pont that I could hear John Williams playing behind me and Artoo chirping in my ear."
"Pure, unadulterated retro goodness! Imagine Asteroids. Now imagine Asteroids with enemmies. Now imagine Asteroids with enemies in 3-D. If that doesn't sound appealing to you (fool!) then Battle for Vesta may not be for you."
"What sets Battle for Vesta apart is how it adds depth to an otherwise familiar shooter game because of its control scheme... you hurtle into space and literally face the asteroids and ships floating in the galaxy."
Battle for Vesta is a fully 3D space combat simulator set in an asteroid field. If you want a sci-fi adventure in your pocket that boots fast and let's you get right to playing, Battle for Vesta is for you.

Ratings and Reviews
Quality game, better controls than I thought
Great game, easy to play.. And its free !'Would be absolutely amazing if the deveolpers made a elite clone from this. Go on guys its well within your reach and this game proves u wouldn't need much more than some scripting , some menu's and some models, if u did that I'd pay for it easily at the £5 mark . Good job
What a great game, lots of fun and runs very smoothly. Takes me back to playing this type of game on my atari st
Would have been 5 stars if the controls did not put your finger over the thing your trying to shoot when aiming left.
This game is brilliant!, but could be better, I think it would be a good idea to have a backdrop like planets, suns and even large galaxies. This would make the game so much better, and make it even more 3D!!
