Editors' reviewThis must be what Homer Simpson s nightmares are like. In a twist on the classic arcade-shooter Asteroids, you play the driver of a rocket-powered beverage truck menaced by tumbling beer kegs. You spin, dodge, and fire bottle openers that pulverize the kegs into six-packs, then bottles. Deadly beer mugs add to the challenge. Occasionally police cruisers drive through, sirens wailing, spitting explosive donuts. And yes, you re supposed to shoot the police. Not cool, guys. The substandard graphics and irritatingly jerky gameplay made us wonder what Astrobeer is doing with its more than 7MB of memory. The best feature is the jaunty polka background music. But even that wouldn t persuade Barney Gumble to stick around for more than one game. D oh!
Astrobeer is based on the classic game Asteroids. Pilot your rocket-powered beer truck through a sea of beer while eliminating kegs, six-packs, and bottles. The cops in Astrobeer do not have guns, instead, they throw exploding donuts.
