So the original Asteroids has hyperspace instead of a shield like Asteroids
Deluxe. I think hyperspace sucks.

There is a chance of vanishing and popping up right over an asteroid =
immediate loss of a ship. There is also a chance of popping up in a corner
just in time to be shot down by a small or large flying saucer. As far as I
can tell, hyperspace vanishes the ship and puts it in a random location.

According to one source, there is a 1 in 5 chance of not being destroyed
after using hyperspace. That's good enough to only use it as an absolute
last resort.
