Setting a BAD precident with ads in gaming

I know this game is "free" (a term used very loosely in the app store these days) and expectations shouldn't be too high to begin with, but this was once a pretty good game that did justice to the original and I could overlook the fact that they wanted you to pay for certain upgrades/levels within the game. But apparently that wasn't enough to support the developers because now they sell ads that appear to an obnoxious degree throughout the game. And not only static ads, but VIDEO ads that interrupt the flow of the game and is a complete turnoff. I LOVE Atari and generally support every iOS release they put out but I won't be downloading any more of their "free" games and encouraging this type of product. I would MUCH rather pay for the initial download and be rid of in-app purchases and annoying pop-up ads. In fact, I think it's safe to say that your advertisers actually DISCOURAGE me from buying their product by pimping their goods this way. Hey Atari: How's about working on an update with new games on your greatest hits app that I'd happily pay for instead of this garbage?

Big disappointment

While the game is enjoyable to play and can be addicting in the sense that I didn't want to stop playing once I had started, I was quite disappointed in the lack advancement I was allowed unless I wanted to spend actual money. You're stuck with the same basic ship unless you want to pay and the same goes for other things you may want to have to make your ship stronger.

The app itself hasn't been updated in years and may cause your iPad or iPhone to become sluggish during game play.

The worst thing for me was that the app doesn't save my progress if I stop playing and turn my iPad off. When the app opens, it gets stuck on the opening screen, so I had to delete the app and download it again. Once I did that, I had to start all over again from the first level.

I've been a fan of Asteroids from back when the arcade game first came out and I still enjoy playing it online. I was overjoyed when the new version of Asteroids came out on Facebook and would play for hours, only for the fun to come to an end when Atari removed the game from Facebook.

But, not only has this app not been updated within the past couple of years, Atari doesn't even discuss this game on their website anymore. I'll just have to settle for playing the arcade version online.

Great update to a classic!

One annoying stupid flaw:
The illiterate idiots who design these things don't know how to read so when they flash your objective tips up on the screen at the start of a game the dummies leave the words up way too briefly! Nobody could read some of those lines fast enough!
This is a rampant problem not just in illiterate games but by inexperienced editors of movie trailers, films, TV programs, commercials and the culture in general as illiterate millennials and foreign scum continue to take over with their stupidity for convention if not inventive pioneering otherwise.
STOP and think morons and the managers of these monkeys MUST BE FIRED!
