Description official description

An updated version of the classic arcade blast 'em up, this game features full 3D environments, all-new weapons and defense systems and a 2-player split-screen mode. The gameplay is exactly the same. Pilot a spacecraft and destroy the oncoming asteroids, each of different sizes, defeating the enemy boss at the end of each level. Alien ships and black holes are also out there, along with ship upgrades that update your ship's weapons and defense systems. Multiplayer options comprise cooperative and competitive options.

The Good
I like the new 3-d part of the game. Also, the 2 player mode.

The Bad
This game is exactly the same as the original but with better graphics. Really a bummer. The sound isn't really that good and the gameplay is the same as the original. It's still just as easy and no more exciting.

The Bottom Line
Asteroids Hyper 64 is a bad game. Exactly the same as all the other clones, it fails to add better components. 2 player mode and 3-D make it better but it still stinks. This game should have been better, but it just wasn't.
