Remakes of movies usually turn out bad, but remakes of games can be much better than the original. Yes the original Asteroids is an excellent and timeless classic game, but as technology has improved so has the ability to make things look nicer. The new Asteroids: Gunner+ looks great and you can get it now with all content unlocked for $4.99 on the App Store. Too bad it’s not on WP7 or Android, I wonder when big developers and game studios like Atari will bring their catalogs to WP7? I think are a couple, but nothing like what’s on iOS…

•Experience Asteroids: Gunner for free or Asteroids: Gunner+ with all content unlocked for $4.99.
