The latest update for Asteroids: Gunner for iOS is available for download now and has quite a few features hidden up its sleeve. In addition to the inclusion of the newly explorable Omega sector, every section of the game has now been unlocked and is free to play. Power-up and Omega slots also get a 90-percent discount — instead of the usual 5,000 crystals you’ll only need to shell out 500 in order to purchase them. There’s also a few new enemies and some more ship customization options added.

As the title suggests, Asteroids: Gunner is a contemporary adaptation of the classic Atari game. You move a ship around in different sectors of space and blast away drifting rocks and enemy ships. The game is available in the App Store.
