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.
• Designed for tablets and phones!
• Vector Graphics (HD) option: This method of drawing the screen is more accurate and closer to the original coin-op. It is the recommended option for tablets and phones with High Definition screens.
• Raster / Bitmap Graphics (SD) option: This method of drawing is faster and also looks better on non-retina. It should be used if the frame rate is dropping below 60 fps on your device
• Multiple Control Layouts : Gesture, Button, Joystick and Tilt.
• Ion Icade Compatible
• Parallax Background : On or off.
• Game Centre Leader boards
• No coins needed!

Spot On ReCreation of a Classic!
Mind blowing how close to the real thing this is. I purchased the ad free version since it's apparent the devs spent some time on this. Controls are very easy to use. I like the pace at which the game becomes more challenging. The only small criticism I have is the game does not have the option to use a shield like the original. The shield was definitely a HUGE help when multiple asteroids are right on top of you. Any chance the devs could add this on the next update?
This is a very fun game and brings back a lot of good memories playing in the arcade !!!
One suggestion would be to allow the position and size of the on screen control buttons to be moved. The rotate buttons are too far apart and I end up rotating the wrong direction, of course right at the worst possible moment! Please fix this issue so my tiny hands can reach all the buttons as necessary!
Great game otherwise!!!
Totally rad rendition of an arcade classic!
From the simulated "glow" of the vector graphics to the spot-on sounds, this is the closest mobile adaptation and accurate reproduction of the original Asteroids I used to play back in the early '80s. For any Gen-Xer hoping to recapture the golden age of video arcade games on their modern devices, this game is a must-have. *Handy Tip: Go pro for just $.99 to get rid of those pesky ads!
