Only one download again this week, but this may spark an interest with our older readers as it is a combo pack of re-worked Atari classics - Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe!


Asteroids & Asteroids Deluxe
1 Player - Rated E - 400 Points - Stainless Games

Two of the all-time classic arcade games come to Xbox Live Arcade in Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, a combo of intense action where players must save earth from a deadly bombardment of asteroids. The full historic game is available in its original form, along with a completely re-stylized version featuring evolved graphics.

  • The original Asteroids: Released in 1979 by Atari, the simple black and white game was a masterpiece of vector graphics game design, and had millions of arcade-goers entranced by its simple mechanic of controlling a spaceship firing at and destroying asteroids.
  • The release of Asteroids Deluxe: The sequel to the original, released in 1980, Asteroids Deluxe featured the same classic gameplay but added a new shield feature and dangerous satellite enemies. Play both the original and its sequel in all of its classic old-school style.
  • Next-gen evolution: But now, both games have evolved. Support is provided for both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios, including HDTV. Full-screen anti-aliasing and Dolby Digital surround sound complete the gaming experience.
  • Throttle Monkey mode: Both game versions come with a high-speed version known as Throttle Monkey. Can you survive?
  • Achievements and leaderboards: Twelve new achievements for you to earn, and new leaderboards to conquer. Show your friends who is the master at Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe.
