"The future of Asteroid games is here with this well constructed shmup game, the graphics and sound are fantastic and the controls work well with my iPad 2. A must have for asteroid fans"
"This is simply stunning - I love it! The graphics are amazing and the gameplay rulez! Some people will love this for the nosalgia of the old coin-op classic, others will love it just cuz it's so freaking awesome!"
"Graphics are great, UI is really cool and the giro control is nice and responsive making it a pleasure to play. All the good points from the original with a modern overhaul and major improvements."
"This game ROCKS! No pun intended. I've been waiting for a great game like this. Similar to X-wing and the genre. Other space sims dont have anything on this."
"Neo Retro. Simplistic in nature - this game scratches that retro itch in a way that doesn't make me feel old! Pew pew laser laser!"
