– Asteroids Game –
This is a free online Asteroids game (clone) with a twist, imagine Asteroids meets Nemesis for a good night out, here’s the result. Your starter ship is rather, well pants actually, so collect the power-ups to get the upgrades you so desperately need to win. Should you improve your ship’s speed or rotation first, upgrade the gun or go straight for the mega-super-(actually-rather-overpowered)-smart-bomb? Only you can decide.
This Asteroids game is designed to get you moving a little more than the Atari original so don’t expect to just sit in the middle spinning around shooting like a maniac. Get thrusting and learn how to control the ship, it’ll help with some of my upcoming games too. You can find enough more or less accurate clones with a quick google and I wanted to add a twist to get you to want “just one more go”.
The original Asteroids game was developed by Atari way back in the seventies. For those of you old enough to remember it, hopefully you’ll also enjoy this version.
