Just for fun, I did a net search for Asteroids clones: (13 clones) (5 clones) (28 clones!)

...the list goes on. And some of these are several years old.

As far as I understand it Atari has a trademark for the Asteroids game, which means nobody is allowed to sell a game with that name or close resemblance. I'm not sure trademarks apply at all on non-commercial hobby activities.
