Contest: Asteroid Blast - an addictive retro game for your BlackBerry - 25 copies to be won!

Asteroid Blast

I remember spending hours as a kid, glued to my screen, blasting away at pixels vaguely resembling the objects they were supposed to represent. Imagination was a major part of gaming back then, and even with the high-end graphics available to me nowadays, I still get a kick out of retro style games. Asteroid Blast satisfies that craving, and does it well, giving you a classic game feel right on your BlackBerry device. I bought the app and got right down to playing, and to be honest, it took me a while to remember to put it down and write this post. Gameplay is smooth and the graphics are simple, making this a great time-wasting addition to any device. Available for all devices, both touch and non-touch running OS 4.2 and up, it's available in the CrackBerry App Store for $4.99.

Contest: We have 25 copies of Asteroid Blast to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries wont count.

Contest: Asteroid Blast - an addictive retro game for your BlackBerry - 25 copies to be won!



YEEEEEEEEEsssir, I want to win a copy of this fabulous game.. I remember when it first came out back in the DAY. lol Thanks Crackberry!

I used to love this game. Played many hours of it. Funny how simple of a game it is, but very addicting.
Please consider me.

Dude, stroids!! Sweet. I watched a guy flip the score and then sold the game to a kid for a quarter. He had a ton of ships.

I haven't played this game since I packed away the old Atari. I wouldn't mind the chance to play it on the go.

I wonder how much better my college grades would have been if this game had never been invented. This was by far my favorite video game. I sunk untold numbers of quarters into it. A win would appease this somewhat. Thanks for a great remake!!!

You guys are taking me back, way back. One of my favourite arcade games, so you know that if I get one it will be one of my most used apps on my BB.:)

Wow, I remember standing in the local Mini-mart playing that game and always running out of coins because I sucked at it. Please give me a chance to redeem myself!

Note: I don't see a cents symbol on my BB. Can we get that fixed? Thanks. Asteroids is a "blast!". Still have it for my Atari 2600 which still works. :) Thanks, CB and partners for the contests!

omg, this is really a back to the future app.......the hours I put in playing this a long time ago...! This would be seriously addictive.

But they do interest me! I've just lost the last 30 years looking at the screen shot alone! I had the Asteroid electronic toy back in the 80's so it would be amazing to recreate that on my Blackberry. :)

This is such a classic game. Grew up with it but its been so long. Definitely would be all over it on my BB

Getting so caught up in this game after school, I was late getting home and got in trouble. Those were the good ole days. At least I can't get whooped now.

If I remember it was .50 cents a game back then. In 2010 dollars they should have been charging .17 cents....they owe me!

I would never, ever pay $4.99 for this. That's the problem with BB apps.....just too many that are too expensive. And if it were priced at $.99, I bet the developer would still make a killing as the would sell a ton more copies.

That being said, I sure would like to win a copy.....

I loved this game when I was younger! I used to line up quarters on the machine to hold my spot while I ate my slice of pizza! lol! Man this would be awesome and right on time. Going on my wife's family reunion cruise starting next Monday. This will be something I would play while I lock myself in the bathroom to avoid them. lol!

I remember playing this like 8 yearrs ago... its amazing... wish i could have it!! Count me in pls.. gluck all and thx again CB

Just saw a cameo of Asteriod on Family Guy's "Star Wars" show. Would love to be able to play it while I watch! remember this game. A freebie would be great otherwise I will have to buy it.


a blast from my past !!!!!!b

i would love it !!!

my thumbs will probibly fall off....
but i would love it just the same !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow. Good times. This looks like fun.

I remember playing this when I was a kid. Somehow the color version on atari was still no comparison to the monochrome version at the arcade.

I WANT THIS! C'mon, we all the love the old wire frame graphics of Asteroids!! I'll take one please.. I havn't won anything in a while and if I'm "due" then THIS is the app/game I would love to win!

I was just wishing I had a game like this yesterday when I was on the road. Would have helped pass the time.

Good luck to everyone.

This game looks like it would be fun. Unortunately, I remember the "old school" asteroid from my "Atari" days. Its amazing that the graphics available today on my Blackberry blow away the "top" graphics from the early 1980's. Love to win one of your 25 copies of this...

I LOVE but LOVE this gameeeeeee is like the best retro game everr
P I C K M E :) love crackberry btww I'm addicted to it

i remember playing this game on the atari 2600 (OH MAN THIS DATES ME). that was some fun!!! i wonder how it handles on the blackberry.

Awesome game! I probably have carpal tunnel syndrome from playing that game so much as a teen. Would be cool to have. Pick Me please!!!!

Blast me with a copy of asteriods. I loved this game back in the day and it would be awesome to have it on my BB. thx

I can remember playing Asteroids on the Atari 2600 so long that the score reset to zero. I don't remember getting much of a tan in my youth...
