Fun Atari Game
11 August 2006 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Rated E

Pong released in 1972 was the first video game ever made. It was made for the Atari system and didn't have good graphics due to its time yet its a good game.Same for Asteroids.That game was also in the CD I got in the cereal box.This game came out in 1979.THis game is better than Pong.Better graphics and gameplay.What you do is you use your spaceship to shoot asteroids.No real plot but back then no one cared about plot.THis game was great for its time.Now its just okay.Its one of the few games that actually work in my atari CD-Rom.Get this game if you can find it for free or for a very cheap price.

7/10
