Potato Toot's comments:



Asteroid Asteroid tries to capture the feel of the classic arcade games while maintaining a sense of being made just for mobile. The game may not have many different elements but there is a lot of action! And like the classics, you will die! A lot and often. But, I promise you, you will be having fun while doing it. No money grab with this game - even though it's freemium. I wanted, first and foremost, to make a fun and fair game (everything else will take care of itself). I never liked random prizes (loot boxes, gashapon ...) so this game contains a mini game for unlocking the other ships. The mini game is inspired by the 80's game show "Press Your Luck" (Can you tell I'm influenced by the early 80's? My formative years) That game costs gold to play (You can never buy a ship - the mini game is a real game , so NO pay to win!) gold is earned in game (blast small gold asteroid), Rewarded Video (when it's offered), or IAP (I honestly do not expect any IAP, but I included it to meet the gaming community's expectations for mobile games. I expect Rewarded Video to be the main way gold is earned, but we'll see).

I hope you give Asteroid Asteroid a look, and I hope you like what you see. I'm just a small dev (single person) who thinks there is an appetite for quirky, simple but challenging arcade games on mobile that aren't idle clickers or games that bombard the player with colors and sounds trying to distract from an otherwise uninspired gameplay experience. It's about having fun. That's it.

Thank You for taking the time to check this post.

Oh, one last thing, the title is localized, so it will not be called Asteroid Asteroid if your store language is French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Chinese (Simplified or Traditional), Korean or Japanese. It is also localized for Turkish, Thai and Vietnamese but when I last checked, those stores are in English (not sure what that's about). [Maybe that is why the data for Asteroid Asteroid isn't showing properly in this post. ]
I think it will eventually clear up

In the French appstore it is called AsteroidAsteroid.
The game can be played without internet connection which is a first good point.
Sound effects are great and the asteroids animation is good.
It is a bit challenging for me to get in use with the swipe controls but I need more training
Thank you for the gift (free game). A good casual game in my opinion.

I was able to download using cell data. Apparently theres no longer a size limit.

Anyway, real quick imps are very similar to Jean P above. The swipe controls are a bit fiddly.. Combining movement, aim direction, and firing all with tap/swipe gestures makes it a bit difficult to do what I want to do. Perhaps this could be addressed down the line. In the meantime, thanks for the game!

I have the same issue with the swiping. I didnt expect there to be swip controls which I have never found to be reliably accurate. In a zero G game it feels like I have very little control over the ship.
