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.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
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?
