General Information


The follow-up to Atari’s classic, Asteroids Deluxe includes similar, but more challenging game play with a just enough twists to make the game a very exciting sequel. Just like the original, your mission is to survive through stage after stage of asteroid fields. In Asteroids Deluxe your ship’s hyperspace has been replaced with a shield function, which allows you to bounce off asteroids. In addition to the UFOs, Killer Satellites occasionally appear in search of destroying your ship.

Coin-Op Details

This full size upright game has a very interesting visual effect. Through the use of mirrors, it appears almost as if the play area is "floating" in space. There is no real good way to describe it. You have to see it for yourself.
