Arcade Gems

Astro Fantasia

May 6, 2021

Each week for Arcade Gems we highlight some lesser-known, must-play titles. These games are favorites of those in-the-know, and, once you give them a try, we think you’ll agree that they’re worthy classics.

This week’s Arcade Gem is Astro Fantasia (1981) by Data East Corporation. In this space shooter, one or two players take turns controlling a spaceship and fighting waves of enemies. With inspiration drawn from earlier shooters, Astro Fantasia uses simulated 3D graphics to add depth and dimension to the battlefield.
