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.

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
This is still an awesome game. I recently got an icade compatible Bluetooth controller with joystick and game style buttons. It works flawlessly with this app!! Great job developers! You guys are truly one of the few SW iOS developers that are professional and thorough with your work. Please keep up the great work!!
Very nice asteroids app. I went ahead and got the pro version. This app is real smooth and is very good both graphically as well as smoothness and speed and playability.
Very Nicely Done!
I was thinking back to my arcade days while I figured out how to create my own arcade at home with Retropie. Decided to search the app store and came across this rendition. First game with this app was a lot of fun and brought many memories of my school days. Button placement for controls a little off, and suggest working on adjustability but that first game sure took some time to finish. 😋 That said, enjoying it after the first game. Will continue playing and update review if anything pops up.
