Atari 2600The Video Game Critic
Astroblast is great fun but has an odd scoring system. You actually LOSE points for NOT shooting asteroids. I guess it's designed to reward aggressive players, but sometimes it's tough to get your score above zero! Fortunately, your peak score is considered your final score. Fast and furious, Astroblast is a highly underrated game.

If you have an Intellivision, I'd recommend the Intellivision title Astrosmash over this because of its superior graphics, but, since most people don't have one, this game's addictiveness and gameplay are more than enough to make up for its lack of variety and limited aesthetic quality. Nobody plays an Atari 2600 game for sound and graphics anyway.

Overall, Astrosmash is a competent shooter with good controls and a fair amount of entertainment value, but it lacks variety.

Astrosmash is fun for a while, but the difficulty doesn't increase fast enough and the game becomes boring after prolonged play. Also, there's only one difficulty level. At least there's an auto-fire feature to save your thumb. Ironically enough, I prefer the Atari 2600 version of this game.
