Welcome to Astro Wars. Created by developers that brought you Galaxy Invader and Scramble
Beats N Bobs are proud releasing to release one of the most eagerly anticipated retro tabletop arcade vintage game, Astro Wars.

Restart by turning off & on.
We painstakingly analyzed every detail this tabletop has and achieved 99% compared to the original. We modified controls as it simply does not work as well with phone/tablet so extra large arrow keys included but left joystick in for purists (but recommend larger arrow keys). Those sound effects are here. Four phases including docking sequence. Astro Wars is compared with two real tabletop machines as these also vary with slight details. Enjoy this blast from past. If like this why not look at our others. Back to 1980s!
Check out our other 1980s emulations, vintage handheld games like Invader From Space, Galaxy Invader 1000 plus many more 80s arcade classics.
