One of the most original Arcade games to hit one of the first home consoles, was this simple shooter that delivered!

REAL Atari POWER!

Asteroids was inspired by SpaceWar! and Computer Space earlier in the realms of game development. But this was something different.

It had an easier way to play throught the Atari 2600 andit's cool joystick or paddle controls when the earlier games in the arcade. Alongside this, the artwork and design of the advertising was amazing, and the game was really nice to play too.Spin, rotate and thrust through space and shoot any asteroids that are in your path. The simplicity of using just shoot and a thrust button made this game very simple game to pick up and play. 

What was your high score?!
