The new Asteroids is already receiving accolades from gaming industry experts, earning a 4-star rating (out of 5) and an Editor's Award from WGWorld. WGWorld reviewer Jesse Garcia commented, "It's the same shooter in every sense of the word with extra stuff added on to make it that much more fun. This is another classic for mobile re-done just right." As the newest mobile version of Asteroids, the game encompasses an array of features which modernize the experience yet keep it true to original, old-skool game play.
