Asteroids is one of the best games on 2600! Classic!

Retro Play

After playing Space Battle and Space Hawk on my Intellivision, I played Asteroids on my Atari 2600, and must say, this is one of my favourite classic games ever! It was a hard choice between Space Invaders and Asteroids!

While neither of them are my favorite, Space Invaders takes the nod for my true classic pick.   Both were great, but for my money...the port of Space Invaders was spot on.

Then again, Space Armada is my favorite version of Space Invaders, and I prefer Astrosmash to Asteroids. :)

If you like Atari 2600 Asteroids, try Spiceware's Space Rocks. Darrell's homebrew is much better than the original Asteroids, and even includes a vector version like the arcade machine.
