The original space shooter warps to the modern era! Asteroids: Recharged has been reimagined for modern gameplay, with vibrant visuals, powerful new abilities, and another original soundtrack from award-winning video game composer Megan McDuffee.
It is fitting that Asteroids is in the first wave of titles to be Recharged. Asteroids is indisputably one of the most influential video games created during the formative years of the modern video game industry. It became the highest grossing arcade cabinet when it was released in 1980, and a year later quickly established itself as the top-selling space game and top-selling shooter on the Atari 2600. You will find it in the top ten on countless “best videogames” lists.
Asteroids: Recharged creates a familiar, but revitalized and modern challenge to both old school and new high score chasers. And 30 unique and creative challenge levels take the space shooting game play into new territory, complete with local and global leaderboards.
An entirely new collection of power-ups — including spread shots, rail guns, reflector shields, and more — help players stave off splintering asteroids and aggressive UFOs. Co-op play lets you play with a friend, and ramps up the intensity as players do their best to coordinate and survive.
