Web Game of the Week: Asteroids Revenge III

Every Thursday, Geekanerd Johnny brings you a new web game to pour your precious time into...

Sometimes villains are ill-depicted. In 1991 the softer side of the Tazmanian Devil was shown in Taz-Mania. 2003's The Fog Of War allowed Robert S. McNamara to have his say on life, business and the Vietnam War. In 1982 Nintendo showed to be bipartisan in the Donkey Kong/Mario dispute by making Donkey Kong Jr. Finally, in 1979, a small space ship was attacked by gigantic rocks in Asteroids; 28 years later those rocks were vindicated and Asteroids Revenge III was made.

"For hundreds of years humans have destroyed asteroids. It wasn't personal... it was just business. One day an asteroid woke up and saw the destruction..." So begins the techno beat induced epic retaliation of asteroids to the humans. Your goal is to build up an army of ally rocks to battle the mother ship and to buy enough time as possible to let your friends escape the onslaught of the human forces. While the controls initially seem cumbersome and slightly counter-intuitive (they're explained throughout the game), the game itself is rather easy. Just follow the instructions and you'll have a blast.

Strategy: Having as many allies as possible is essential, however, never neglect getting armor, speed, and spin. The C key is your friend.
