3D Asteroids

By Grass Games Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Fans of the original Asteroids will find this 3D interpretation plenty enjoyable, though the uninitiated may wonder what all the fuss is about. A gloomy ambience reigns in this game where you, lost in space, face hordes of asteroids and a smattering of interloping alien ships. Fortunately, the laws of physics are defied here, and you can hear the asteroids coming toward your ship and from which direction they're coming. The controls take a while to master, but you can assign new keys to give yourself a leg up. 3D Asteroids even allows saving profiles of control keys for several players. The gameplay becomes a bit monotonous, but whoever said war was a variety show? We especially recommend the game for folks who haven't forgotten the old good Asteroids.

Developer's Description

Asteroids finally hits the third dimension. Though many new asteroids games claim to be 3D, they are in fact flat 2D games with 3D effects. GrassGames 3D Asteroids is the first asteroids game to enter the third dimension for real. Using a unique six-view screen and a special control system, your task is still to dodge and destroy asteroids, but this time you have to watch your back and every other direction you can think of. Faithful to the original, classic Asteroids game in all respects, but with an extra dimension, 3D Asteroids offers something original and fresh for all players.
