The game becomes harder as the number of asteroids increases. (wiki)

Like most arcade games from the 70's and early 80's, this was frustratingly difficult. Very simple primitive graphics meant that each level was just a rehash of the last one, but with more enemies, which means that unless you have the patience of a saint or extreme focus, the game gets tedious and boring really fast. I played this maybe a handful of times on the Atari 2600, then threw it into the deep dark abyss that was my closet, never to see the light of day again!

One of the all time greatest games ever and a personal favourite.

It is what it is - playable, but in terms of space shooter arcade-type games I'd certainly go for Space Invaders or Galaga over it.

Another Atari hit from the 70s. This one re-purposed the control scheme seen in earlier attempts like Computer Space into a game with more approachable and faster-paced action. I see the appeal, but I was never that good with these types of controls.
