Astroblast (Slow & Steady Mod)

Hack of Astroblast

Description:

Developed by Hal Finney as a port of the Intellivision’s Astrosmash, Astroblast is a space shooter involving using a laser cannon to destroy falling meteors, bombs, and other targets. Avoid the UFO’s missiles, split up the big rocks, take out the spinners… all while trying to keep the pace and top your peak score.

This romhack provides the following enhancements to the Astroblast experience:

1) Removes the paddle capability in favor of joysticks (”Without a Paddle” mod).

2) Resets the difficulty levels so they increase at the following scoring achievements:

  • 5,000 points (1,000 in original game)
  • 20,000 points (5,000 in original game)
  • 50,000 points (20,000 in original game)
  • 99,000 points (50,000 in original game)

At 100,000 points, the hardest difficulty level is set and maintained (”Slow & Steady” mods).

3) Reduces the penalty incurred when a base is destroyed (”Sweet Dreams” mod).
