Hmmm...
Get it before it's pulled from the app store, I guess...

Quick impressions and Review:

Retro at its Best! 5 Stars *****

The developer has captured Asteroids to a tee. The sound effects, gameplay are great.
The controls are very well done and allow you to easily control your ship.
For those that played this game at the arcade you will find it to be exactly what you remember it to be minus all the quarters that it cost to play.

The controls take a few minutes to get used to but DEF worth the dollar for anyone who played it in the arcades.

As said, get it before it gets pulled. Glad I saw this...

Nice one ... but two things:

1. This game is twice as fast as the old original one was ...
2. The controls could be more sensitive.

So I hope for an update before it get away ...

That's exactly what I thought when I watched the video.
But then I thought, "I was so much younger when I played it in the arcades, maybe my reflexes were just faster then..."

No, I am absolute sure about that ... I played this really more than 1.000 hours ...

One of my all time favorites!

Controls feel great! Just a tad to fast. Perhaps they could add an animation slider to control the speed or have 3 speeds to choose from (eg. Fast, Normal, Slow).
