And now the moment you have all been waiting for. This weeks XBLA release will be the Asteroids/Asteroids Deluxe
combo game set to release for the retro standard of 400 points. I'm personally not much of a fan for the retro remakes on the arcade; however, OXM did give it a decent 7/10
. As I'm pretty sure most of you know, Asteroids
pits you in an arena style battle to survive by blowing apart every bit and piece of all the asteroids that are currently on the screen. Asteroids Deluxe
takes the same formula and adds a bit more fluff by adding shields and more enemies. In addition to these games, the titles will have a new "throttle monkey" mode, which gives the player a "high speed" version of either title. I'm hoping this new game mode will put it more into the realm of one of the best freeware titles ever created, Echoes
by Binary Zoo.
Is anyone going to pick this one up or will you be waiting for the demo?
