I guess I missed this one earlier, still it's not too late to play a version. I'll have to see about downloading a version from Xbox arcade or something, since I don't have any version to play at the moment, with my Atari 8-bit and 2600 2600 Flashback in storage (I need to get the new home-brew version on cart, the vector version, it's on the FB IIRC). But my favorite version is Deluxe on the 7800, I think they did a really good job with the animated asteroids while still keeping the great original game play intact.
I wish the game Darxide, for the 32x was in NTSC form, as a 3D version would be cool, IMO, I've seen videos and it looks cool. Some guy on Youtube did a review and was mocking it, since it is just a 3D version of Asteroids, making fun suggesting nobody would want that. Another modern majority moron, IMO, I'd love it.
I'd hoped it would have been one of many, in a line of 3D's and 2000's on the Jaguar back in the day, with original, plus and 2000 versions. At least we got Tempest 2000, Defender 2000 and Missile Command 3D. And to a lesser extent Breakout 2000, though that could have been better. I imagine an Asteroids 2000/3D VR for the Jag, just like the prototype Missile Command VR. It's such a shame the Tramiel's pissed away such opportunities with their under-handed management tactics.

Used to love the game on the 2600, then poured a lot of time into the home micro conversions of Blasteriods, 1st on C64, later Amiga, was always surprised game never made it to the Genesis in some enhanced form....
