The follow-up to Atari’s classic, Asteroids Deluxe includes similar, but more challenging game play with a just enough twists to make the game a very exciting sequel. Just like the original, your mission is to survive through stage after stage of asteroid fields. In Asteroids Deluxe your ship’s hyperspace has been replaced with a shield function, which allows you to bounce off asteroids. In addition to the UFOs, Killer Satellites occasionally appear in search of destroying your ship.
about this version
This full size upright game has a very interesting visual effect. Through the use of mirrors, it appears almost as if the play area is "floating" in space. There is no real good way to describe it. You have to see it for yourself.
*NOTE: Dimensional Weight (also know as "Dim Weight") is an industry
standard formula used by shipping companies. The calculation is used
to determine how much space a package will take up. Most shipping rates
are calculated based on Dim Weight or actual weight, whichever is greater.
The formula for Dim Weight is (L" x W" x D")/194. The examples shown here
show the actual dimensional weight for the game, and then given an
estimated shipping dimensional weight assuming that 5" of packing
material is needed in each dimension. Your actual results may vary.
