Atari has developed this habit of getting us into free versions of their games, then suddenly adding that “+” so we’ll pay to get more. Which we do. We did it with Breakout Boost+, and now we’ll be doing it with Asteroids: Gunner+ for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Available for $4.99, Asteroids: Gunner+ provides gamers with access to eight ships and three galaxies full of enemies to blast and Crystals to collect.
Asteroids: Gunner+ features:
Experience Asteroids: Gunner for free or Asteroids: Gunner+ with all content unlocked for $4.99.
Three galaxies to explore and conquer, with 150 waves of asteroids and alien warships to obliterate.
Dual-stick controls for firing and movement, perfect for non-stop blasting action.
Access to 8 unique spacecraft to pilot.
Legions of power-ups and upgrades to customize your ship and turn it into an unstoppable force.
Compete against friends in the turn-based Challenge Mode for high scores… and bragging rights.
Earn Crystals and purchase Space Bucks to unlock new galaxies and powerful upgrades.
An extensive achievement system that lets you earn ranks.
OpenFeint and Game Center integration.
Asteroids: Gunner is still available for free with one ship and galaxy included, with additional content available through in-app purchases. If you’re ready to dig deeper into the galaxy, though, you’ll be happy to know that Asteroids: Gunner+ is a universal app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and is available now for $4.99 (with additional in-app “crystal” purchases available if you want them). You’ll just need to make sure you have iOS 4.0 or later to run it.
