Space Invaders

Space Invaders

Row upon row of nasty aliens marched across the screen firing their weapons at you in this arcade classic. The idea of Space Invaders was to shoot the aliens out of the sky whilst dodging their bullets and hiding behind some knid of basic shelters.

Gradually the shelters eroded from the continual assault and the aliens marched nearer and nearer to the earth. And is if that wasn't enough the aliens began to move faster and faster making them extremely difficult to pick off.

    I've never played the REAL Space Invaders. However, I did play TI Invaders on the TI99 4A. As far as I know, it was a very similar to Space Invaders. From the description, it sounds like it could be talking about TI Invaders.

    Space Invaders - ah, where to start?! I remember first seeing a cabinet in the Noblehill Cafe in Dumfries back in 78 or 79 and I tells ye, it was like witnessing something really profound and that. Suffice to say I was hooked on it and video games ever since.

    This was the game that every girl hated. She could guarantee to be drinking her martini in the pub alone whilst her fella and mates played this insane game!
