Product Description

Product Description

The original arcade version of Asteroids was an early milestone in video game design. The controls were easy to master, yet each new level provided enough challenge to keep arcade goers depositing quarter after quarter. This new generation--a port from a recent PC and PlayStation release--immediately updates the original idea with colorful 3-D and other enhanced features. Your ship now has to contend with metal-crushing black holes, hidden enemy spaceships, and bursting solar flares. And your ship will also have new defenses at the ready, including homing missiles, bombs, and forward shields that will allow your tiny craft to plow through just about anything.

All of these added features, however, don't detract from the thrust-and-fire thrill of the original, which means that parents might want to play head-to-head against their kids on a single Game Boy or on two (using the separately sold cable link). And if this update makes you wish for the classic arcade Asteroids of yesteryear, look for the hidden 2-D, vector-style original inside this version.

Asteroids, like other classic games from the original video arcade era, is still fondly remembered by retro gamers--and for good reason. This game reminds many gamers of an age when gameplay was more important than graphics.

The first few levels play just like the original Asteroids game. Your ship starts in the middle of the screen, spins, and blasts asteroids. You can thrust about and pick up some nifty power-ups, but the game doesn't really heat up until later stages. For example, the second stage introduces dangerous black holes that you must avoid. Strangely enough, the final levels play somewhat like another classic game, Missile Command.

There are lots of hidden goodies in this game, from new ships to an embedded version of the original wire-frame Asteroids. Fortunately, this version offers more than a simple facelift to the aging arcade game. Asteroidsis simple enough to pick up and play for a few minutes, yet addictive enough to keep you occupied for hours. Retro arcade fans should put this one on their shortlist. --T. Byrl Baker

5.0 out of 5 stars Great January 16, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A pretty good reproduction of the old Asteroids. The graphics are colorful although a bit dark so you'll need good light. You can see everything well, but the game has the ship & asteroids on a black background (most other games have a light background). The action gradualy builds until you are dodging and shooting for your life...then some new thing shows up and kills you. Good to keep in the bag for layovers at the airport.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kool game April 29, 2001
A Kid's Review
This is a really good game. You have 3 ships to choose from, each with their own special things that they can do. The only thing that I think is bad is that the last zone is way too easy, and the fact that when you play in expert you don't get any special weapons. But the graphics are great and the whole storyline and gameplay is really cool. This is a great game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Asteroids Strikes Back June 20, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a new cartridge for an old game. This means if you don't like original Asteroids, you'll not like this one too. But if you've fighted in a wireframe universe for years you cannot miss this one. Many new hazards and enemies will cross your way, ready to be blasted out! There are five space systems to fight in, three ships (four, if you're good enough to win the last one) each with its special defense, the original game hidden (not very well) somewhere and passwords to keep progress made. So what you're waiting for?

4.0 out of 5 stars It's really cool. July 10, 2004
By Pdog1
I bought this game and love it I have played it thriugh entirely at least like 10 times. You have 3 ships all have special powers (i suggest the 3rd one it's my favorite) and you can earn a forth one. Once you beat all of the missions you get the original asteroids and a new ship. I highly recommend this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars An old classic brought back to life July 12, 2011
By Jeremy
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've always been a fan of old archade games and when I dug my gameboy color out from the closet I figured I could aquire a few classics to play. This version of asteroids has color graphics and a few changes but it stays true to the original. There are fifteen levels per zone but I don't know how many zones there are for I have only unlocked four(the fourth zone is very challenging). After playing a few levels you can even unlock the classic version and play it! I am very pleased with this game.
