AsteroidRush

Download.com Staff Oct 8, 2009

AsteroidRush is a basic arcade-style game in which users must destroy asteroids and other objects that threaten their spaceship. It's not very interesting, yet we found it somehow addicting in a totally mindless kind of way.

The program's interface is very simple. The player's spaceship is located in the middle of the screen and can spin around but not move from its spot. The spaceship is bombarded by asteroids (which look a lot like meatballs) and other unidentified objects from all directions. Users shoot at these threatening objects to protect themselves and earn points. Some objects confer special powers, such as a protective bubble or increased fire power. The program doesn't have a Help file so much as a screen explaining that the game's controls consist of the arrow keys. Apparently, that's all you need to know. Users who like games that progress through various environments or otherwise do something to keep themselves interesting will find that AsteroidRush does not offer much in the way of long-term entertainment. Users who like to space out for a while and blow up some asteroids will like it.

AsteroidRush is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users; it's not the most fun we've ever had, but it's not bad for a brief diversion.
