Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

Asteroids, albeit with perfect circles. "The spheroids are taking over star systems, hindering interstellar travel!" Intense arcade action, explosions and sounds. Focus is on gathering powerups that drift out from some of the exploding spheroids. Powerups work for only like about 7 seconds each, but when gathered they enter a queue, so for example if you gather 10 powerups instantly, then you're covered for around 70 seconds, with each flavor of powerup playing out like a movie, in the order you gathered them.

Game screen layout suggests a 2-player game but I can only get it to start in single-player mode.

The .app filename cannot be renamed or else it fails to launch.
