As the difficulty settings weren't shown during the video, here's the game's manual. It describes difficulty A as having UFOs going after the player ingame & B has no UFOs. I couldn't find any UFOs during the gameplay video therefore I voted yes. yes

"DIFFICULTY SWITCHES

The ASTEROIDS game has two difficulty levels, a and b. The b level is normal game play for beginning players. The a level offers a bigger challenge with the addition of UFOs(Unidentified Flying Objects) and satellites(see Figures 3 and 4). UFOs are tough to hit, but each one is worth 1000 points. (See Section 5 for SCORING.)

Satellites are larger and easier to destroy. UFOs and satellites may be firing back at you, so be on the lookout for their stray artillery. UFOs do not attack until you have reached over 15,000 points. When satellites and UFOs sneak up to attack you, you'll hear their engines. The satellites have a low pitched engine sound and the UFOs have a higher pitched sound."
