One of the six confirmed pack-in games that comes with EVERY Intellivision Amico! Designed originally by John Sohl and released in 1981, the original Astrosmash game on Intellivision was one of the most popular and biggest selling games for the original system. So much so that it was ported to the Atari 2600 under the name Astroblast.
Our Amico Retro Re-imagined version is being developed by Rogue Rocket which is co-founded by original Earthworm Jim artist Nick Bruty. Aside from single player, you can play with up to 4 players. Including Co-Op or Versus modes.
Although Amico's broader appeal will cater to families and casual gamers, we also have games to be enjoyed by more serious gamers who are looking to enjoy the challenges of couch co-op and in person versus modes at a little higher level.
FUN FACT: Astrosmash T-shirts are worn by the characters Cisco Ramon, in the first season of The Flash, and Sheldon Cooper, in various episodes of The Big Bang Theory.
Please note: This is an unfinished work in progress sampling of the game. More surprises on the way! This was recorded and played directly from the Intellivision Amico system.
