Well, this is an interesting remake of the original Astromash, made back in the day. You are the mobile cannon on Earth defending against such enemies as falling asteroids, bigger falling asteroids, homing missiles trained on you, bombs, and even UFOs. The only problem I have is with this flashy title screen. Granted, it looks cool, but gives me a headache after lookin at it for a while.

The gameplay is very smooth and runs very well. The more points you rack up, the harder and faster the game gets. As a matter of fact, one session can last a pretty long time, if you're good. It really should be ported to V200 and Ti-92+, it's worth it ;-)

“Astrosmash” is simple, and this simplicity makes it all the more fun and addicting. The graphics look very good, and the white sprites on black background look solid. There are a variety of enemy graphics, some like the UFO's that do not make their presence felt until later on in the game. My only complaint is about the title screen, which flickers like mad. The controls are straight-forward. The auto fire is very useful; for once your fingers won't run sore from a shoot-em-up game!

I never played the original “Astrosmash”, although now I'd really like to. I give this game a 9.5/10 (-.5 because of the seizure title screen). This one's staying on my 89-Ti for a long, long time.
