In that last update, I had made mention of a fictional arcade game called Meteoroids. Some time later, while looking to add roms to my MAME collection, I found it!
Yep. Meteoroids is a real game. Sadly, it’s only a pretty lame rip-off of Asteroids with dial controls (which, in emulation terms, means: “touchy as fuck”) and zero semblance of thoughtful design. Too bad.
