Editors' Review

Awkward and nonconfigurable controls mar this otherwise nice arcade shooter. In Desktop Roids, your task is to use your spaceship to destroy all the asteroids and comets flying around. After about five objects hit you, you die. Big asteroids split into smaller parts that can still hit you with as much impact as the big ones. As the game progresses, comets join the asteroids in trying to destroy your spacecraft. You fire in bursts of one missile or three bullets. There are two ways to control the spaceship--through number and letter keys--and both are nightmarish to use. Still, the game is addictive. The more you play it, the more you want to, regardless of the troubles with the spaceship controls.

    "Utterly ruined by (at least) one glaring flaw"

    October 21, 2003   |   By lake_atop_mountain

    Version: Desktop Roids 2.0


    I like the *concept* of this game, but it's a total wasted 10 MB download as it stands, because it is virtually unplayable owing to the inability to assign one's own desired control keys. The default keys assigned for play are utterly stupid and ridiculous... you'll never be able to control your ship; period, exclamation point.
