Here’s a free game to start your day off with, it’s the sequel to an old favorite. The game is called Asteroids Gunner and it’s free and the graphics just look amazing. I already grabbed it earlier and played for a little bit and it’s certianly different from the original but it’s still a decent game nonetheless.

Atari, one of the world’s most recognized publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, announced the launch of Asteroids®: Gunnertoday on the App Store. Asteroids: Gunner is a free-to-play, dual-stick action shooter for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, developed by Fluik Entertainment, the minds behind Office Jerk. In the first original sequel to the genre-defining arcade game Asteroids, released in 1979, players will journey across multiple galaxies in search of valuable cosmic crystals and exciting asteroid-blasting action. A turn-based multiplayer Challenge Mode is due for release in the game’s first update, expected to hit later this year.

Take on the role of the Gunner on a journey across the galaxies, blasting his way through deadly asteroid fields and alien fleets as he works his way to the top of the gritty crystal mining industry. With three different ships under his command and three dangerous galaxies with 150 total enemy waves to crush, players will have a literal and metaphorical blast as they gain rank promotions and collect cosmic crystals in order to buy upgrades that will transform their space crafts into undeniable asteroid-destroying machines.

• Three all-new galaxies to explore and conquer, with 150 waves of asteroids and alien warships to obliterate
