Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

After the success of our Galaxy Invader and Invader from Space games, Beats N Bobs are proud to release our most eagerly anticipated and requested video game emulation, Astro Wars.

Travel back to the 80's and this was THE video game to have in the home. It was one of the most advanced video games of the time with four sub games, coloured fluorescent display and a joystick only seen in the arcades. You could finally have your very own arcade machine in your home.

TO PLAY:
Turn Power ON (menu will disappear and intro music will play).
Select Level (Graphics will resemble difficulty level).
Press Start (Gameplay will begin after intro music).
Fire at all enemies while dodging enemy fire on all phases of attack.
If you survive three attack waves,you get the chance for more points if you can dock your rocket-ship.
Press fire, left and right for thrusts to land rocket ship.
Game is complete when you reach 9999 points or you lose all your lives.
To restart, turn off and on Power.

We have painstakingly analysed every detail of this game and we have managed to achieve 99% of the original. We had to modify the controls as it simply does not work as well on an iPhone or iPad so you now have extra large arrow keys but we have left the joystick in for the purists out there (which you can try to use but we recommend the larger arrow keys). All the sound effects are here. All four phases including the docking sequence. We compared this to two real machines as these also vary with slight details and we are very pleased with the results. We hope you will be too. If you find anything that does not feel quite right let us know from the app. Enjoy this blast from the past and if you like this why not look at our others.

    Colorfull

    Another great retro game! Joystick worked well for me but arrows keys are there just in case. Surprised to see full color models instead of lights, I can see why this was a hit. Difficulty factor is pumped up so you have to be quick. Perfect for the collection of the other retro apps. Great work again!
