Classic, monochrome vector graphics. Production run of Lunar Lander machines was cut short to get Asteroids into the arcades as fast as possible. Therefore the first Asteroids machines still had Lunar Lander cabinet artwork. Asteroids was the first game to give the player complete mobility within its playing environment and complex inertial controls to master.
Although Space War was the first game to feature a Hyperspace button, it is always Asteroids that is remembered for pioneering its use.
