Original Asteroids game?

Is there somewhere that I can get the Original Asteroids 1978-9 to work on my Win 7 64 bit system.
I would love to play this again and show it to my 5 year old.

Thanks in advance

If your hardware supports a VM you can run it in an XP vm. You may also be able to find a clone of it that was made later that will run in 32bit.

You could probably download an emulator that will run an Asteroids rom file. My guess would be an Atari emulator.

Do you trust game reviews / worst game installed but got good review
Do you listen and trust game reviews or judge them for your self. Would you still buy a game if it only got fair review but the price was cheap enough. What game did you install and was deeply disappointed even when the game got a good review
