Tips for Atari Asteroids on AARP Games

We hope you're enjoying the new Atari Asteroids on AARP Games. There are some nuances to the gameplay on desktop and mobile and we hope the following tips will help with your gaming experience. If you have a tip of your own to share, please do post a reply below. Thank you and enjoy!


Game-Specific Tips:


Asteroids: On desktop or laptop, you can use your keyboard’s arrow keys to maneuver your ship instead of the on-screen arrows, if you so choose.


General Tips - All Atari Games:


On desktop or laptop, be sure to keep your cursor inside the gameplay area. Moving your cursor outside the gameplay area will pause the games. 


Using a mouse instead of your laptop’s touch pad can make for smoother play.


It is better to click rather than to use the space bar as instructed to start or resume a game. The space bar will sometimes cause the page to scroll, which we are in the process of correcting.
