One of my all time favorite arcade games
25 July 2005 | by (someplace) – See all my reviews

Asteroids is a great game. It was made back in the day when graphics were simple, game rules were simple, the controls the simple, and everything was fun. There aren't any overly complex levels, it is just pure fun. At times, certain levels can get frustrating. As each level goes up, the asteroids are harder to destroy, this can get frustrating.

A few of my other favorite arcade games from this era are Galaga, Pac Man, Dig Dug, Tetris, and Galaxian. Even though these games are old, their levels are fun, and they are very addicting. At times, when you've been playing for a while, you just don't want to stop. That's what makes a game fun, when you never get tired of it.

This is a great game, I really enjoy playing it. Some day, I hope to find an old Asteroids machine and keep it in my basement, along with some of the other games I mentioned.
