Super Asteroids & Missile Command 

 

I was really confused by Super Asteroids & Missile Command on the Atari Lynx. Yes I played this game on the Evercade. What confused me about Super Asteroids & Missile Command? I could only find Missile Command when I played it during the live stream. I went back and had trouble finding Super Asteroids again. I looked it up online and found I had to press left to get to Super Asteroids. I did that and was finally able to play the second game on this cartridge. I could find no ways to leave one game and get to the other one either.

Super Asteroids & Missile Command is a bit on the hard side. In Missile Command (default game or press right to get to it from the main menu) we shoot up explosions to intercept missiles coming down at us. There is a certain finesse to the timing in Missile Command. Players must line things up just so and hope they comprehend how long it will take their missiles to reach that spot. One mistake and your buildings get blown up.

Super Asteroids is a bit touchy in the controls and flying around. The rocks are flying pretty fast in Super Asteroids. There are explosions as we blow the rocks apart in Super Asteroids. I like how good the rocks look in this hand held video game as well. I was not expecting that at all. You can play as long as you have ships. Avoiding the rocks is a wise thing to do in Super Asteroids.

The music is fun to listen to in Super Asteroids & Missile Command. It takes some time to get used to the controls in Super Asteroids & Missile Command. I obviously had issues finding both games and that shows a major design flaw. At least give the players some idea how to swap games. Why can't we swap once we start the game? There are definitely some areas this game could have been improved.

All in all I enjoyed spending some time with Super Asteroids & Missile Command. Both of these are interesting takes on their respective franchises on the Atari Lynx. It is really cool to be able to play Super Asteroids & Missile Command on a home television set thanks to the Evercade system. I hope to see more retro hand held video games released on the Evercade systems.
