Hints and Tips

The file “Asteroid Rally README” that comes with the game explains the controls and how to play.

Hint: If you find you are crashing into asteroids a lot, try slowing down! Managing your speed as the asteroids get close together is the key to the game.

If the game doesn’t run smoothly on your computer, try some or all of the following steps:

  • Turn off the game’s music in the Options menu.
  • Lower the Graphics settings in the Options menu.
  • Switch your computer screen’s resolution to 640×480 or 800×600 before running Asteroid Rally.
