A beefed-up version of an old arcade classic.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • There's a hidden dev credit accessed by pressing Fire, Up + Pause, Down + Pause, Left + Pause, and Right + Pause on the title screen, but the code doesn't seem to work.
  • The 3D Asteroids prototype has a different developer credit and the full version of the below message: "IF YOU CAN READ THIS YOU'RE TOO CLOSE.GCC(C)1984".

Developer Message

At 0x3FEC is this rather ominous message:

TOO CLOSE.GCC(C)1984

The full version of this message can be found in the prototype's data.
