    I hate video game programming. :/

  13. I don't remember doing anything in this game other than zooming across the screen at light speed, making it appear as though the ship existed several times at once.

  14. I made a reboot for fans. It’s called Solaroids.

  15. looks best on an original Arcade …i miss the shiney bullets…glow like stars.

  16. Brings back memories of playing this at the slot-car track centre at Blacktown in Sydney in the early 1980's!

  20. "Tyler said he got 69,000 points on Asteroids yesterday but he pulled the plug"

  23. What I’d give to go back to these days 🤦‍♂️

  24. Back in the old days, this arcade sensation was my forte! i remember my biggest record : Doing 17 times the maximum score of 10000 points. All in the same game with one quarter!
