Imagine playing Asteroids without the ability to shoot anything, instead being limited to simply flying around the rocks. Now imagine sitting around playing with a pile of rocks. Neither are enjoyable, but at least you didn’t pay for the rocks. Btw, the designer's best times listed in the manual are insane, and most likely impossible. We've yet to see anyone complete the easiest course in under 1 minute, or the hardest course in under 4 minutes - 1:07 and 6 minutes respectively are about the best we can do. Let Jim Jacob come forward and prove me wrong!
