I don't even remember playing the original Asteroid game that much. That being said, this is a great game because it truly gives you justice on what you can control. I've always loved the notion of being able to move to another side of the screen when you go out of frame. Everything is really unique in this. I liked the different kinds of weapons and different kinds of enemies. At least you put a lot of nice detail into this game that didn't get that popular.
Of course, I'm the guy who praises underappreciated works. While not a masterpiece, still very good. The sounds and everything else sync up pretty well. The use of sprites and colors was nice. It seemed like you had a lot of room to move around with how you went from one screen to another.
