A timed game in which two players race upward on a black and white screen avoiding one-scan line “asteroids” flying from the left. Only speed can be controlled and when a player gets hit, he starts back at the bottom. When a player reaches the top of the screen, he gains a point.
Asteroid was produced by Midway Manufacturing Co. in 1973.
Midway Manufacturing Co. released 133 different machines in our database under this trade name, starting in 1959.
This game features rocket-shaped players that race upward toward the top of the screen while avoiding the asteroids flying from the left. The player to make the most trips before the timer runs out wins. When a player is struck, his spaceship appears down at the bottom of the screen again.
The length of play is regulated by a timer that starts when the start button is pushed. Players fly up towards the top of the screen, and can control their speed upwards. Asteroids (a one scan line high blob) fly from left to right, and the players try to avoid them. Whenever a player is hit, he starts again at the bottom of the screen. When a player reaches the top of the screen, he gains a point. The winner is the person with the most points.
