    So, hands up who owned an Amiga or A1200? Those who did may remember the classic Asteroids update Stardust (or the A1200 sequel Super Stardust).

    Well according to threespeech Super Stardust HD will be hitting the PS Store this summer!

    :smashin:

    Also on the way is a Snake variant of sorts called Snakeball.

    Stardust originally came out on the A500 and was unique at the time for having ray traced graphics (translation: shiny rocks!). It was coded by a developer called Bloodhouse.

    Team 17 picked up the rights to the A1200 (and CD32) sequel Super Stardust which had improved graphics and a cool tunnel section between levels.

    It was a good game at the time, was a long while ago but i'm sure a HD version would make a decent PSN download. :thumbsup:

    the original Stardust had the tunnel sections too. Team 17 just published the second game, Bloodhouse (under the name Housemarque) developed it.

    Your right, I also forgot that Bloodhouse changed their name. I wonder if they are behind this new version?

    Still got my A500 and I had an A1000 for a time too until it broke (half the memory, build like a brick but it had the signatures of the designers etched into the case).

    Na, I upgraded for Alien Breed!

    Makes you laugh how big a 512k memory upgrade was back then, compared to say a 2 gig memory stick duo now!
