    Remember that game Asteroids? The one where you’re in a triangular space ship that sits in the middle of the screen? Around you giant asteroids float and separate into smaller chunks when shot and eventually dissipate into nothingness? And if you press a direction you just keep on floating and floating forever? Well, even if you don’t remember, you’ve just been told all about it.

    So the basic story of Asteroid Buddies is the same as the original. Float. Shoot. Destroy. Repeat. Except for in this version, there are “buddies” floating around. What are buddies? Think of them as asteroid groupies – they want to hang around the biggest one they can find, so don’t you mess with them, or they’ll come after you! But just like real groupies, years of neglect have left them weak and all they can do is push themselves harmlessly into you. Though, if no other big asteroid is around, they’ll keep nudging you, and if they push you into the path of an incoming asteroid - so be it.

    The mechanics of the game are the same as the original, the graphics are also very similar, except that they feature colour. Besides the striking similarities, the relatively minor addition of the buddies is a welcome one as it does change the game play mechanic in a slight enough way that it makes a difference, without being intrusive.

    Close enough to the original to be retro, but updated just enough to have a modern edge. This version of Asteroids is an interesting one and is certainly worth a look for the interested.
