The game appears on the album cover of It's Hard by the Who. The was possibly the first video game to make it onto an album cover.


This game is a two-player colour version of Asteroids. It has two different modes of play: competitive and team. In competitive mode, each player competes for points. Players can shoot each other for bonus points, but they don't lose a ship. In team mode, the two players are attached together by a "filament". Each player's ship can move and shoot independently while still being attached.

How to Play

The player has five buttons: two to rotate the ship left or right, one to shoot, one to activate the thruster, and one for force field. Shooting all objects on the screen completes a level.
