Created by developers that brought you Galaxy Invader, Scramble/Astro Command, Beats N Bobs are proud releasing a most eagerly anticipated tabletop arcade video game emulation, Astro Wars. Its 1980, and THE MUST HAVE home video game . Arguably, the most advanced video game including four sub games, retro flickering coloured fluorescent display plus joystick only seen in arcades. You could finally have your very own arcade machine at home. Love retro style 1980s games?
PLAY: Turn Power ON (menu will disappear, intro music plays). Select Level (Graphics demonstrate difficulty level). Press Start (Gameplay begins after intro music). Kill enemies while dodging enemy fire from of alien attack phases. If surviving three attack waves, more points if can dock rocket-ship. Press fire, left & right. Thrusts use Fire for landing rocket ship. Game is complete when reached 9999 points or lost all lives. Restart by turning off & on.
We painstakingly analysed every detail this tabletop game has and achieved 99% compared to original. We modified controls as it simply does not work as well with phone/tablet so extra large arrow keys included but left joystick in for purists (but recommend larger arrow keys). Those sound effects are here. Four phases including docking sequence. Astro Wars is compared with two real tabletop machines as these also vary with slight details. Enjoy this blast from past. If like Astro Wars why not look at our others. Back to 1980s!
