-COMMENT-
Now there's a lot of things to say. First of all, the overall experience is nice, it's one of those game that have a high addiction factor. The re-interpretation of the original navigation system makes the game more playable (i never liked the original control system, even if i always found it somehow interesting).
A little list of things that you could improve:
-Game graphics. They work fine but some little improvements could make the whole experience more enjoyable
-Hit area, this is the most importat thing to fix i think. Make the hit area the same shape of the object it is for (asteroids, bullets, powerups and player ship)
-Audio FX, those need a fix. I'd suggest some higher quality sounds, preferably short so that you don't have too many noise in high asteroids traffic situation.
-Powerup direction, as Sciotix sayd, having powerups going around in different directions would be more interesting than having them just falling around.

I'd also be tempted to suggest a lower powerup drop rat, but the actual just fits perfectly and make the game more addictive.

So, it works and it's nice, but with little improvements it'd just be perfect ;).
4/5

Ah, know what? Maybe an extra "original graphics" unlockable feature would be nice :)

Its good

but it could be alot better, the item drops fromn the asteroids should continue in the direction the asteroid was going, not fall, that kinda implies gravity in space, where there is none. and the handling of the ship is a little tough to control and it had me ramming into alot of the asteroids. other than that it was pretty fun.
