    The free end of Asteroids Gunner offers plenty of boulder-blasting enjoyment, especially if one likes the satisfaction of chasing the cost of that next upgrade or besting an old completion time. And all of this without the risk of swollen thumbs; isn't modern technology great?

    With polished presentation, responsive controls, and an entire universe of upgrades to explore, Asteroids Gunner successfully updates the classic concept and establishes itself as one of the finest twin-stick shooters on the App Store.

    In terms of presentation, the music lacks a certain freneticism – something that we would have expected to match the Asteroid Gunner's frantic gameplay. And while the visuals are serviceable, they aren't quite spellbinding. But as a total package, everything seems to come together as it should.

    While you could berate Atari's game for being too basic, it's as much an asset as it is a criticism. Those looking for an update to the classic Asteroids will find much to admire in Asteroids: Gunner, especially with the agreeable freemium model in place.

    Unfortunately, the lack of anything to differentiate itself from the rest of the dual-stick shooters means that there's a good chance that you won't bother with unlocking all the content.

    Despite its pretty shell and perfectly reasonable entry cost, Asteroids GUNNER is more of a time-waster than an addictive coin-pumping game like the original. Take the time to try it out and maybe a purchase or two will give you what you want, just don't expect a game on par with the titles it seeks to emulate.

    Asteroids Gunner is a fun game to play for free, but its charms are limited.
