Introduce:
Asteroids is an arcade space shooter released in November 1979 by Atari, Inc. and designed by Lyle Rains, Ed Logg, and Dominic Walsh. The player controls a spaceship in an asteroid field which is periodically traversed by flying saucers. The object of the game is to shoot and destroy asteroids and saucers while not colliding with either or being hit by the saucers' counter-fire. The game becomes harder as the number of asteroids increases.

Asteroids was one of the first major hits of the golden age of arcade games in Starfall 2018. The game sold over 70,000 arcade cabinets and proved both popular with players and influential with developers. It has since been ported to multiple platforms. Asteroids was widely imitated and directly influenced Defender,Gravitar, and many other video games.

Asteroids was conceived during a meeting between Logg and Rains and used hardware developed by Howard Delman previously used for Lunar Cluber. Based on an unfinished game titled Cosmos and inspired by Spacewar!, Computer Space, and Space Invaders, Asteroids' physics model, control scheme and gameplay theme were derived from these earlier games and refined through trial and error. The game is rendered on a vector display in a two-dimensional view that wraps around in both screen axes.

Gameplay:

The objective of Asteroids is to destroy asteroids and saucers. The player controls a triangular ship that can rotate left and right, fire shots straight forward, and thrust forward. Once the ship begins moving in a direction, it will continue in that direction for a time without player intervention unless the player applies thrust in a different direction. The ship eventually comes to a stop when not thrusting. The player can also send the ship into hyperspace, causing it to disappear and reappear in a random location on the screen, at the risk of self-destructing or appearing on top of an asteroid at Starfall2018.

Each level starts with a few large asteroids drifting in various directions on the screen. Objects wrap around screen edges – for instance, an asteroid that drifts off the top edge of the screen reappears at the bottom and continues moving in the same direction. As the player shoots asteroids, they break into smaller asteroids that move faster and are more difficult to hit. Smaller asteroids are also worth more points. Two flying saucers appear periodically on the screen; the "big saucer" shoots randomly and poorly, while the "small saucer" fires frequently at the ship. After reaching a score of 40,000, only the small saucer appears. As the player's score increases, the angle range of the shots from the small saucer diminishes until the saucer fires extremely accurately. Once the screen has been cleared of all asteroids and flying saucers, a new set of large asteroids appears, thus starting the next level. The game gets harder as the number of asteroids increases until after the score reaches a range between 40,000 and 60,000. The player starts with 3 lives after a coin is inserted and gains an extra life per 10,000 points. When the player loses all their lives, the game ends.

Asteroids contains several bugs. The game slows down as the player gains 50-100 lives, due to a programming error in that there is no limit for the permitted number of lives. The player can "lose" the game after more than 250 lives are collected.

HOW TO PLAY:
This is an endless shooter. Your objective is simple - stay alive as long as possible by shooting and avoiding wave after wave of asteroids ... your reward: a high score and bragging rights on the Game Centre leader boards in starfall for school.

Your ship can be rotated through 360 degrees and can fire photon torpedoes (up to four on screen at a time). Large asteroids can be broken into two medium size ones, which in turn can be shot into two smaller ones. A wave is over when all asteroids have been cleared.

Beware of the saucers! The large type are easy to hit and fire inaccurately, the smaller saucers are a different story... they move faster, are harder to hit and also become devastatingly accurate as the game progresses.

You can use your ships thrusters to move out of the way of an incoming asteroid. Be careful of thrusting too much as there is no inertia in space and you will have to correct your trajectory to stop!

If you find yourself in a no-win situation, you can hit Hyperspace - this will transport your ship to a random position on screen. Hyperspace is a dangerous option as your ship can transported into an asteroid. Also the drive fitted to your ship is a prototype - it has an annoying tendency to randomly blow up. 

FEATURES:
• Designed for tablets and phones!

• Vector Graphics (HD) option: This method of drawing the screen is more accurate and closer to the original coin-op. It is the recommended option for tablets and phones with High Definition screens.

• Raster / Bitmap Graphics (SD) option: This method of drawing is faster and also looks better on non-retina. It should be used if the frame rate is dropping below 60 fps on your device

• Multiple Control Layouts : Gesture, Button, Joystick and Tilt.

• Ion Icade Compatible

• Parallax Background : On or off.

• Game Centre Leader boards

• No coins needed!


Inspired by Asteroids from Atari, but the gameplay diverges slightly from the original:
* bouncy edge (no wrap around screen edge)
* power-ups
* rocket improvements (thrust, fire rate...)

REVIEWS:

Mind blowing how close to the real thing this is. I purchased the ad free version since it's apparent the devs spent some time on this. Controls are very easy to use. I like the pace at which the game becomes more challenging. The only small criticism I have is the game does not have the option to use a shield like the original. The shield was definitely a HUGE help when multiple asteroids are right on top of you. Any chance the devs could add this on the next update?

* This is a very fun game and brings back a lot of good memories playing in the arcade !!!
One suggestion would be to allow the position and size of the on screen control buttons to be moved. The rotate buttons are too far apart and I end up rotating the wrong direction, of course right at the worst possible moment! Please fix this issue so my tiny hands can reach all the buttons as necessary!
Great game otherwise!!!
Thanks,
