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.

talker2

I play this in coffe shop when I was young

JimA

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!!!

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!

gregerator

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!

kwksti

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.

Coffey123

I want it please!!!!!!!

chrissym68

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. :)

jzrobotics

Asteroids, classic game...lots of good memories.

banger_of_skins

I love that game. One of the first I ever played.

nfldberryuser

Would love this one & yes, I'm old enough to remember when this first came out in the arcade version..... sigh....

MissoulaMarinerFan

I've been looking for a new game, and this one could be it! Hook me up CrackBerry!

carolinakidd10

kenofpace

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.

dingusmaster

nostalgia just set in :)

mckamiev

I love this game... I would love to win a copy!!

inspector6

I would love to win a copy of this game. I use to spend lots of quarters on that one :)

dkgip

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

jlb21

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.....

SteveO86

That's pretty sweet I use to spend hours playing that game!

n1ckr0th

that would be pretty cool!

Drlawl

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!

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...
