SummaryTwitch arcade with high level of difficulty
The GoodExcellent presentation with good graphics for an 8-bit system. The sound effects are good. Packaging and manual are also good. In every area except difficulty I would give it high ratings.
The BadThere's one huge caveat: the difficulty level starts off *brutally* difficult and never lets up. I have put a couple of hours into playing into this cart and have reached a high score of a whopping 218 points - and that was a complete fluke. Most of my games end after about 60 or 90 points.
I just sat and forced myself to play another 30 minutes. High score? 179.
The Bottom LineWay, way too difficult! Either there should be a skill level option, or Astrododge should start somewhat easier and then increase difficulty as you play.
Considering that this cart costs 35€ plus shipping, it is a frustrating experience.
