It truly pushes the boundaries when it comes to offering you a unique way to battle enemies in space. It’s very creative and fun, and it pushes the limits in a very empowering manner.


The way you play Atari Asteroids is very easy to understand. The idea is that you are moving the space ship via rotating, and you can also thrust. Once you nail the movement aspect, you will need to shoot and eliminate the saucers, but also all the asteroids that are coming your way.
