I was walking on Aggripas street in Jerusalem, on the pedestrian part on the corner of King George when I saw what looked like construction going on at a basement pool hall I used to frequent when I was a student at Hebrew University. The pool tables were shit so I never used them but they did have an Asteroids machine. I remember one memorable day when I had played one game that lasted over 13 hours. The game only ended because of a power failure. I was certain at the time that I was without a doubt, the best Asteroids player in the Middle East, at the very least. Well the Asteroids machine is long gone and now the pool hall is going to be turned into probably yet another bakery or Felafel joint or something equally useless. And of course wasting 13 hours on a video game was a stupid waste of time, but one can’t help but wax nostalgic. So here for your time wasting pleasure, is a Flash version of Asteroids. Enjoy! And if it helps, while you’re at it, feel free to pretend you’re a footloose and fancy free ck let loose upon Jerusalem. Sigh… we’ll always have Asteroids…
