Blast the internet with 'Asteroids' applet


Andy writes to tell us his buddy has completed work on the new American Eagle site. No, we aren't directing you to seasonal Zelda jammies (would you wear those?) -- the update includes a "hidden" Asteroids mode! Just add "?mode=asteroids" to the end of any page url to crack this Easter egg open.

The minigame appears to be an implementation of the "kick ass" javascript recently released by 18-year-old Swede Erik Rothoff Andersson. The script -- go on, try it -- can be run on any site to transform it into an Asteroids playing field (press "B" to highlight targets). Can you beat our high score on this page? (1490!)
