Asteroids on Live tomorrow

Steroids. Mm.

Microsoft has told us tomorrow's Live Arcade treat will be a double pack containing Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe.

This rocky offering could be yours for 400 Points (GBP 3.40 / 4.65), and takes you back to the olden days of vector graphics as you blast your little spaceship around and break up enormous asteroids as they hurtle towards you.

Deluxe is the sequel to Asteroids, and both will come HD visuals with a high-speed "throttle monkey" mode to make things a bit trickier - plus the usual Leaderboards to climb and 200 Gamerpoints to earn.

Look out for our review of Asteroids soon.
