How can one small asteroid cause so much havoc? It's just a rock, right? Wrong! These free-floating hunks of rock damage ships and destroy convoys while making life difficult for the military trying to fight nasty extra-terrestrials. It's costing the company millions in lost cargo and various other precious commodities and may even start to cost them those lucrative military contracts in a galaxy littered with riches and hostile aliens.
So, what does it have to do with you? Well, the Astro-Mining Corporation is looking for a few good pilots to help clear the galaxy of those pesky asteroids. Clear a path so the company makes money and you make money. Oh yeah, you'll also need to take on the alien queen and clear out the rest of the aliens before returning home. It's all part of the Astro-Mining Corporation's plans to make as much money as it can.
Activision's Asteroids has three levels of difficulty for five areas with five levels. With three ships at your command and plenty of power-ups to enhance your weapons and defenses, not to mention an assortment of asteroids and aliens, you can play by yourself or with a friend in the two-player mode.
Do you have the skill to dodge and weave past the asteroids? Are your wits strong enough to keep aliens from blowing you to bits? I hope you're ready, because the Astro-Mining Corporation and the Earth are counting on you! ~ Jason White, All Game Guide
