A cherished vector-style game that sucks you in instantly when you get started playing! “Asteroids” is one of the earliest games in history, and for many it’s still among the best. Released in 1981 by Atari, it helped the company become the first giant in the video-game industry. This game is as simple as brilliant: you have to navigate a tiny spaceship around a field of aggressive asteroids. As you shoot them they get smaller every time until eventually disappearing … easier said than done!
