No, but I find there is a large amount of spacewar/asteroids clones out there to look through.
I suspect only you would recognize the right one, though.

...just an observation: as the links are identical to all the posts about EA/Origin freebies; so there is no need to repost, unless you actually mention *what* game is being offered at the time.
(The current offering is SimCity 2000 SE, but who knows what the previous were?)

Spam in ... Polish? Looks like it's testing the waters to see if its message stays up.

Hmm, probably wrong, but...any/all of the Star Wars X-wing games had you fiddling with the energy balance between guns & shields. Also the Wing Commander series had that for some energy weapons.

My guess will be 'Wing Commander: Privateer" just to choose my favorite from them :-)

How about "Space Duel", it is listed at Wikipedia as having a Windows release.
It has vector gfx similar to asteroids, and 2-player coop or versus mode

Maybe you can find something at the spacewar pages at hardcoregaming? http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/spacewar/spacewar.htm If multiplayer > 2 people, maybe look at XPilot or Continuum? (There are walls in the maps though, not just stars.) http://www.xpilot.org/about/ http://www.getcontinuum.com/

I don't have these games, but I see on a support page for Heretic shareware that you have a required setup to do before the game knows how to use the serial ports; see if this page helps: http://takegame.com/shooter/htm/heretic.htm Also you need to have a serial port, of course; not an actual modem....

There was a catalog listing of a game called 'Think/Luck& Logic', without any further description, for the TRS CoCo in an old magazine from 1983, but I have not been able to find anything more about it, so I cannot say if it is the same game. https://archive.org/stream/80_Micro_1983-09_1001001_US#pa...

A tin-foil hat sales bot, and registered no less.
(Postings are almost spelled right, and kind of in the right forums for what he sells.)
