not to be bustin bubbles, but am I the only one who thinks that these achievements seem a wee bit on the completely stupid end? clockstopper? rockstorm? who would think of these things!? I wish they were more straight forward and not so misleading. Geometry wars was a good example of good acheivements IMO.

well, just wanted to share my thoughts on these.

Does anyone at all even have all the achievements on this game yet? Some seem really hard to get. Also, I dont see the point in some of the achievements repeating themselves, just some on asteriod and some on asteriod deluxe.

I'm so tired of the Throttle-Mode achievements. They have got to be some of the worst achievements to get.

I can't get them either. I have not played it in awhile because I get frustrated.

So what achievements have people managed to get? I did the 28 shots one, but that's it. I can't even come close to the others. On the leaderboards only a few people have ever passed 99990 points, so that one seems ridiculous.

You know I liked Asteroids back in the day but I was horrible at it. Funny that these old retro games have the hardest freaken achievments...... Tapper, Tempest, Missle Command, Contra's....... etc

throttle monkey is pure luck in my opinion, 250000 points seems impossible compared to other impossible achievements like mad marine, wave 100 (robotron), and wave 100 (joust)

I just got ruthless today, and I had the one where you shoot a satalite and its spreads into 6 pieces when a spaceship is on the screen. I am now going for throttle monkey and I am super close, I think I'm #38 on the leader board on throttle monkey, I will get it very soon. But yeah these achievements are way too tough. Did someone say there was a shield in this game? and if so how do you use it? I saw some reference to it in the guide., I know about telporting, but I am not aware of a shield.

Yahoo!, I now have 120G/200G on this game now!!! I am only missing the 2 Throttle monkey achievements and have gotten very close to both of them, I'm #10 on Deluxe Throttle monkey classic, and mission the Clockstopper, and the Platinum. Amazingly tough game, but fun too.

word of advice, play throttle monkey for a few hours straight and you find that you'll get a lot better at this game and your reaction speed will greatly increase. Thats what I did and the achievements started pilling in.

got this game a few weeks.
by the way, i played this in the arcades originally,
but was never very good at it. it's a lot easier
playing it now.

the xbox 360 version is a port of the game, and not
an original simulation of the game, like the one in
gameroom, or on official atari compilations.


yes, some achievements are very hard. like the 99,990 and 250k ones.

the rest are possible. i have 6 of the 12 already.
----------------------------------------------
the easiest ones are these:


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/334/+FZZXw==.jpg Ruthless 10
Destroy 10 Saucers without letting any escape Asteroids - Normal difficulty
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stay on the first board, break down the big asteroids until there are only 1 or 2 left, if at all possible make sure they are slow moving ones. When you break down the asteroids, some will be moving at much faster pace than others.

Then you can start doing the saucer 'hunting'.
Basically, you can do it 2 ways.
1) stay in place, and shoot saucers as the come out, moving
if their shot is about to hit you. they come out in predictable patterns,
learn them.
2) fly vertically up and down on the screen, and shoot the saucers
as they come out.

of course AVOID shooting the small asteroids, which shouldn't be
too hard as there are only 1 or 2 of them.

good tips here:
--------------
http://atariage.com/forums/topic/198665-help-with-asteroids-1979/

avoid using the hyperspace button, as you have a 1 in 5 (20%) of
dying, unless it's a last resort.
