[Found: Space Battle] Need the name of an asteroids like game in Amiga

I remember an asteroids like game on the Amiga, but don't know what its name is.
It is a very simple one, where the space ships are just little triangles. A green one and in two player mode a second, red one. And some simple asteroids flying around.
Maybe it was written by some guy and is not a commercial one, but I'm not sure.
I need the name of this game. I watched gameplay videos
and searched the net, but I didn't find it.

Unfortunately, when I downloaded a copy of the game I found somewhere and ran it with my Amiga emulator on Android, after the title screen it suddenly showed the game over/highscore table screen and then nothing more happens...

You know, after looking through that list, I thought you were going to say "Yup, it's Space Battle"

I can't vouch for "Android" UAE emulators.

Which version did you try?
... /TOSEC/Games/SPS/Space Battle v1.1 (1987)(Anco)[2705].zip
... /TOSEC/Games/[ADF]/S/Space Battle v0.99 (1986)(Diamond).zip
... /TOSEC/Games/[ADF]/S/Space Battle v0.99 (1986)(Diamond)[a highscore].zip
... /TOSEC/Games/[ADF]/S/Space Battle v1.0 (1987)(Anco)[v SCA].zip
PS; you may want to switch off that annoying TapaTalk signature as per: Signature (direct signatures are not allowed)

So it was definitely the game you're after?

If so we need a GMod to update the thread title

Which version worked for you on Android UAE?

I couldn't download from the FTP URLs you provided, but these two versions of the game from another server worked:
