If you've played the video game Asteroids, you'll quickly feel comfortable with Spacewar There are two significant differences, however. Asteroids, which was inspired by Spacewar, is a single-player game, versus a two-player. Also, Spacewar has a sun in the middle that pulls the spaceships toward the center. The actual physics of the gravitational pull are accurate and add a challenge to the game. Players could also use the gravitational pull to slingshot around the sun.
