While nowhere near 'Argonaut - 2149' in game play, graphics, etc, it's old style simplicity (super simple graphics, low end, sometiems human generated sound effects) did make me smile. And the two player mode is a great idea. But in the end, if I'm going to fire up an Asteroid game, it probably will be something a bit slicker. But that's my taste, not a fault of the program.

What more could you want in an asteroids game? It's fun and simple. No annoying "extras" to detract from the original intent of the game.
ps: Love the sound effects.

This launching problem apparently does not afflict everybody. Unfortunately, I don't have access to a TiBook for testing; I've tried it on several other machines and it worked. I apologize for this mysterious bug!

Lots of fun! How about internet play? Connecting to another user via IP address (with a tracker) would be great!

LOL!, WICKED! Passes the time when ure bored, then u realise that those arent the latest digital sound effects of the rocks exploding, its a kid going "pppooooogh" into a microphone, Thats what I like about it, just goes to show u dont need the latest and greatest technology to make a good game, well done!

Hmmm, not very clever. It doesn't really look like the original which is a shame, nor does does it break any new ground. I'll stick with Maelstrom X

Free, graphics are sharp while maintaining the integrity of the original graphics. i mean its asteroids, its not supposed to be glitzy and eye candy and all this garbage modern games throw out. Its just good, simple fun. When you throw in the eye candy on a game like this, it turns out terrible. I think the new Defender game proved that point.

Game is stable, Graphics are good, sharp, nice, a true game of asteroids. Excellent job, i highly recommend the download.

Wow! This would be a GREAT video game...

...if it was the '80s and I was still playing on my Atari 2600.

Weak.
