A downloadable game

Buy Now$4.99 USD or more

Asteroids RX is a 'from scratch' conversion of two classic Atari games, Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe. It was chosen in a poll by my supporters on Patreon as a game for me to convert. Versions for the 48k,128k and a version with Spectrum Next enhancements are included.

This game was coded by myself in 100% machine code, in my bedroom! The 14-year old kid I used to be has therefore told me to dedicate this game to Sir Clive Sinclair, the man who made it possible for all of us Spectrum fans, and who sadly passed away just a few days before the release.

Note that whilst you can buy this game here as a one-off, you might want to consider supporting me on Patreon instead. This game is included as part of that subscription, as well as my full back catalogue. The cost of a month's subscription is less than the price of this game.

The definitive Spectrum version of Asteroids IMO. Thank you! 

thanks! That was my aim when I started.

Looking to review this for CRASH magazine. Are you able to sent a review copy?

I already sent it to Chris actually

I'm just working a few bonus features, so if you can wait until after the weekend I will send an updated copy to Chris.

I've notified Chris, I guess he will know who you are? I've sent him a copy anyway.
