Oldschool Gaming - reviewing new games on classic computers
Asteroids Emulator (C64) released :: posted by Jason :: 26 Feb 2013

Ever fancied playing an arcade perfect port of coin-op classic Asteroids on a Commodore 64? Well, thanks to Norbert Kehler and his Asteroids Emulator you can! It does struggle somewhat because the C64 has to draw all of the vectors rather than relying on hardware, but fingers crossed there are planned revisions which will bolt in support for SuperCPU and Turbo Chameleon equippted C64s. In the meantime there was a very serviceable version for the Atari 8-bits released November last year which has a faster playing speed.
