Description
Now you can enjoy Asteroids with the 2600 driving controllers, giving you more precise (and analog) control over your ship's turning motion.
 
What's New
  • You can use a joystick (left port) or driving controller (right port)
  • Pseudo "vector graphics" similar to the arcade version
  • Reserve ships are displayed at the top of the screen
  • The old reserve ships number now shows the current player number
  • Last, but not least, Thomas made the game a little bit more challenging.
