    I'm trying to find an old game I played 10+ years ago on an apple computer. I think it was called Asterex or something like that. It was basically an asteroid game like the classic, except it had ship upgrades and weapon upgrades and was in full color. I think I remember it being only for Apple too....but I can't find any info on it on the internet. I was hoping somebody remembers the game.

    Kind of a trip down memory lane...I thought it would be fun to get the game now and see if it's anything like I remembered it. I probably won't be as impressed with the graphics as I was back then.

    Asterax? I believe it was published by Ambrosia Software. I know which one you're talking about.

    I'm gonna report you to a Mod for telling a forum member to shut up! That's not allowed!
