Asteroids is a space-themed multidirectional shooter which was made by Atari in 1979. It is one of the biggest hits of the golden age of arcade games. In this game, players control a triangular space ship in the middle of an asteroid field. Flying saucers will also fly through this field and shoot at the player. The objective is to shoot and destroy asteroids and saucers while avoiding asteroids and enemy fire. The difficulty of the game increases as the number of asteroids increases.
