Power Play (Mar, 1988)
Ich hätte nie gedacht, daß man aus dem alten Asteroids ein derartiges Spitzenspiel rauskitzeln kann. Hier wirkt einfach alles zusammen: Grafik, Sound und Spielwitz. Schon die Steuerung verdient ein großes Lob: Sie ist schnell zu erlernen und sehr präzise. Die Grafik ist atemberaubend: Die Asteroiden drehen sich um sich selber und sind fantastisch schattiert. Auch wenn der nächste Blasteroids-Automat eine Galaxis entfernt sein sollte, sollte man keinen Weg scheuen, um ihn einmal zu spielen.

This game is very addicting, and it's amazing how much thought was put into it for the higher level settings and all; who knows how many people involved with making the game threw in ideas for the additional dangers and all. I think the difficulty level is a bit high, though, as constantly running out of energy sucks; I even found the not so well loved Sub-Terrania game for the Sega Genesis years later to be easier to handle, even though you're constantly running out of fuel on that game, rather than getting swarmed by things and losing energy that way (I'm just using it as an example, though, since the gameplay's totally different and unrelated). Heck, I couldn't even think of many sarcastic things to say here, due to all the new things I had to mention in this update, and I somewhat skimmed over them too.

The graphics are O.K., though perhaps not as startling an improvement as, say, those on Pacmania. But with all the playability of the original — and plenty of new variations — Blasteroids is well worth a flutter.
