Asteroids DeLuxe is the sequel to the Atari game Asteroids
. The premises are essentially identical, as the game involves shooting up asteroids without getting destroyed by shrapnel or enemy ships. It, like predecessor, used vector graphics.
As in Asteroids, you had to destroy the asteroids floating around you. When you shot them, they would break into small asteroids. After a few shots, they are destroyed.
Added features in Asteroids DeLuxe
are a shield, instead of a teleport system, to try and evade destruction. The shield loses power as objects and lasers impact it. Another added feature is a pod of enemy robots in the shape of an asteroid. When fired at, they break up and charge at you. You destroy them as you would any of the other space ships.
