(Color) Meteoroids is a clone of the arcade hit Asteroids. It is a little unique in that it requires 2 joysticks... One controls the spacship's direction itself, while the other controls the direction of the gun on your spaceship. This game is one of the first 3rd party games put out for the Coco, and I believe that it was eventually licensed to Radio Shack/Tandy and resold as Microbes... as it mysteriously disappeared from Spectral Associates advertisements in 1982. It was the 2nd game in Spectral Associates Space Trilogy; between (Color) Space Invaders and Space War (first advertised in the April 1981 issue of 80 Micro magazine.
