Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


An impressively elaborate adaptation of the classic videogame Asteroids to text-adventure form. In fact, too elaborate to be played easily, even apart from the transformation of immediately-apprehensible visual cues cartesian coordinates.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

A turn-based version of the arcade game Asteroids, September 14, 2017
by MathBrush

This game is a variant of the arcade game Asteroids. It has a backstory, and then has you flying through a two-dimensional grid, letting you change your direction and fire at will.

I liked it, but it was too fussy. I think I encountered a bug, too; going off the edge of the grid said I was getting sent back, but the truth was that it didn't send me back.

An entertaining concept.
