Details

 

The Asteroids Multigame and Asteroids Deluxe Multigame are add-on enhancement kits that extend your Atari Asteroids or Asteroids Deluxe game board to play all 3 games: AsteroidsAsteroids Deluxe, and Lunar Lander. As with all Braze Technologies multigames, these kits are loaded with features such as high score save, on-screen settings configuration, and enhanced diagnostic selftests. Switch between games at anytime by simply pressing both start buttons at the same time.

Lunar Lander Huh? how does that work? Check out the Lunar Lander info page for a detailed description of how Lunar Lander is mapped on to the Asteroids Multigame. Additionally there is a Multigame FAQ for commonly asked questions and instructions on how to use the multigame kit.

The Multigame kit comes in two models. One for Atari Asteroids boards and a different version for Atari Asteriods Deluxe boards. For detailed information select the model of the kit by clicking on corresponding image below.

Features -

 

The kit typically installs in less than 30 minutes on your Atari Asteroids board. Simply remove a two socketed chips, replace them with two new daughter cards provided in the kit. Then attach (solder) 2 wires from the daughter cards to your game board. Thats it! It is ready to go! No board modifications other than attaching the 2 wires. 
See detailed Installation Guide and Trouble Shooting Guide.

 

Kit installs in minutes on your Atari Asteroids Deluxe boardset. No soldering or special skills needed. Simply remove a few socketed chips and plug in the kit. It doesn't get much simpler than this! See detailed Installation Guide and Trouble Shooting Guide.

 

Switch between games at any time by pressing and holding both start buttons at the same time. Game will instantly switch to the next game in the sequence. No additional switches are needed.

 

Asteroids extended scoring. This kit contains special code modifications derived from the Asteroids High Score Save Kit allowing scores up to 9,999,990 instead of the original 99,990. No more losing your high score when you roll over the 100K mark. See sample screen shots

 

The on-screen interactive setup menu provides access to configure game play settings separately for each of the games including resetting of the high score tables. No need to fiddle with DIP switches anymore.

 

Transfer your existing Asteroids high scores. If you currently own the Braze Technologies Asteroids High Score Save Kit. You can transfer the high scores from that kit to the multigame kit using a simple procedure of moving a single chip from one kit to the other. See importing Asteroids high scores.

 

Transfer your existing Asteroids Deluxe high scores. The Asteroids Deluxe multigame version of this kit will automatically import your existing high scores from the EAROM chip the very first time asteroids deluxe is played on the multigame.

 

Special high quality gold plated machined header pins on the daughter cards. Provides a perfect mate with your Asteroids sockets. High reliability and strength for a long lasting connection. Daughter cards snap firmly into place. See picture.

 

Top 10 high scores and initials for Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe are remembered permanently, long after the game has been powered off. No batteries to replace ever. 
Note: Original Asteroids did not save any scores and original Asteroids Deluxe only saved the top 3. There is no high score saving for Lunar Lander.

 

Easy to clear out the high scores when desired. Simply put the game into testmode, follow the instructions to get into setup mode. From there, select the high score reset option for the desired game(s) and exit out.

 

Improved selftests and diagnostics including new sound tests, new input tests and enhanced memory diagnostics.

 

Asteroids software includes a new feature allowing the selection of EASY gameplay (original) versus HARD gameplay. This implementation is a result of merging the original Atari Asteroids software with a previously rare Atari Asteroids release. This later Asteroids release changed the game software in order to make the gameplay more difficult. The Asteroids Multigame allows selection of either difficulty level. See Asteroids harder gameplay details (jpg).

 

Atari released a 2nd version of Asteroids Deluxe which had easier gameplay (probably due to complaints). In that revision they added a DIP switch setting allowing selection of the original (hard) gameplay or the new (easy) version. This kit is based off the 2nd release and allows selection of EASY or HARD gameplay via the setup menu. See Asteroids Deluxe Revision 2 release (jpg).

 

Fixes the Asteroids "missing last letter on the 10th score" bug. There is a bug in the Atari REV2 code whereby every time you start a game, the last letter (initial) in the 10th score is erased. The modified software on this kit fixes that errata.

 

The Lunar Landing implementation on the multigame gives visual feedback on the screen when selecting the mission type.

 

All 3 games have improved free play.
