By Mark Muller

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Asteroid 2012 - The original arcade shoot em up (shmup) returns in 3D! Get ready for some insane blaster action with asteroids, meteors and aliens everywhere around you! The old school arcade classic shmup has been reinvented for the 21st century. Asteroid 2012 shakes down the old Atari classic and catapults it into deep space - delivering wave after wave of asteroids and aliens. If you ever wanted to be a pilot flying an X-Wing this is as close as it gets!

Now with primary lasers that can be powered up to do more and more damage and multiple secondary lasers - destroying those asteroids was never like this!

Forget the old vector graphics of yesteryear and enjoy a full 3D shmup experience on your phone or tablet! Take control of your spaceship with virtual controls or your accelerometer!

Asteroid 2012 now contains upgradeable lasers, secondary lasers, bombs, multiple arenas accessible through portals, multiple enemy aliens, atmospheric lighting FX, a brand new UI and now Online High-Scores - Compete to be the best in this retro shoot em up and watch out for the occasional bullet hell bosses...

User Reviews
"The future of Asteroid games is here with this well constructed shmup game, the graphics and sound are fantastic and the controls work well with my iPad 2. A must have for asteroid fans"

"This is simply stunning - I love it! The graphics are amazing and the gameplay rulez! Some people will love this for the nosalgia of the old coin-op classic, others will love it just cuz it's so freaking awesome!"

"Graphics are great, UI is really cool and the giro control is nice and responsive making it a pleasure to play. All the good points from the original with a modern overhaul and major improvements."

"This game ROCKS! No pun intended. I've been waiting for a great game like this. Similar to X-wing and the genre. Other space sims dont have anything on this."

"Neo Retro. Simplistic in nature - this game scratches that retro itch in a way that doesn't make me feel old! Pew pew laser laser!"

Great little game

This game is a great game to play on a ride or when you're bored. Graphics are actually real impressive, my only complaint is the virtual control stick, it's just too small and sometimes doesn't register. But that's my only complaint. There's nothing wrong this great little game.


Superb graphics. Linked the surprise of the enemy fighters. Wish the controls matched actual aircraft control where pulling up means pulling back...a control inverse would work. Impossible to play on iPad with accelerometer mode. End up making the tablet flat .... Cannot see.. Very cool.

Nice work!

Fine job putting this app together! Quality of work shows on all levels. Thank you...
