Asteroids Clone with glass smashing sound

Looking for the name (and download) of an Asteroids Clone, was quite retro for the Amiga as it was line drawn, but it was smooth but the standout feature was this awesome glass breaking sound when the ship got hit. Funny how you recall such things.

The sound was so crisp and clear i though something next to me broke.

I believe it was a PD game, tried searching but i have a feeling asteroids wasn't in the clones name despite being very clearly a asteroids knockoff.

Maybe YAGG, [ Show youtube player ]?

I wouldn't say it's an Asteroids clone though, as there are no asteroids But it otherwise matches your description.

Hello Ivan,

I haven't actually tried these out to see if there's breaking glass sound when you die but possibly "Cabaret Asteroids" or "Outliner"?

Cabaret Asteroids: http://hol.abime.net/3891/screenshot
Outliner: http://hol.abime.net/5210/screenshot

Edit: if not the take a look at these quick matches in HOL: http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?...e_quickmatch=3

Omega Race is the game you are looking for. I was trying hard to remember this myself a few years ago.
