I'd like to say you guys are putting up some nice scores. I've played the game a few more times and can't seem to pass the score I posted. I tried both blasting everything in sight and point press the UFOs. I remember watch John McAllister's marathon via stream for the arcade score and he mainly pressed the ships. I'm curious to some of your strategies.

Also I've noticed when I use warp/teleport I will just die when nothing hit me before or after I disappeared. What causes this? Does it have something to do with firing a lot before pressing "down"?

Asteroids is a really good game for 7800... I like how they changed the feel of it a bit with updated technology.

atomickneedrop has a little while to post a score... if he's playing right now, but the door seems to have closed on him.
