Geocache Description:


Asteroids was a video arcade game designed and released in 1979 by Atari Inc. It was one of the most popular and influential arcade games of all times.

The cache is not at the posted coordinates but is within one mile and the location is thought to be a good home for asteroids. You will have to use your best stealth tactics to avoid being seen by muggles!


Asteroids used a black and white vector display. The player controlled a spaceship in an asteroid field which was periodically traversed by flying saucers. The object of the game was to shoot and destroy asteroids and saucers while not colliding with either, or being hit by the saucers' counter-fire.

The game was conceived by Lyle Rains and programmed and designed by Ed Logg. It was implemented on hardware developed by Howard Delman. Asteroids became Atari's best selling arcade game of all time.



A "3D" version of Asteroids was created for the Atari 7800 in which the asteroids were 3D spinning colored rocks. This version was programmed by Mike Horowitz, Josh Littlefield, Doug Macrae, and Greg Munster of General Computer in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
