Sounds like A-rod the game with sounding like steroids and all.

Maybe a pill??? Sphere steroids...

It's half decent. Not iShoot or anything, but it'll give you a little bit of solid playing time if that's what you're after.

First thing I thought when I saw this is why can't I see through the wireframe sphere? Would make it so much better.

Indeed, it's odd that you can see stars through the sphere but not asteroids on the far side. It's a selectively translucent wireframe sphere, I suppose. :-)

For those who have overlooked this little gem, shame on you...I purchased spheroids a while ago and didn't really play to much. Well over the last month or so, the game has REALLY grown on me...I love it. I haven't got very far. But when I do sit down to kill a level it's always satisfying It's subtle, and some may be put off by the slow start, but by level 8, it should ramp up enough for anybody. If you like retro games, "this" is a must have.
