This is one of the most popular games of all times. During its heyday, there were arcades that were filled with JUST Space Invaders. In Japan, this game caused a yen shortage!
Aliens are attacking, and you must use your base to defend the Earth. A classic game in which the background "thump-thumb-thumb" of the Aliens approaching only increases in intensity as you destroy more of them. Watch out for the UFO, who can be an easy 300 points.
A great classic game, and considered to be one of the games (if not THE game) that led the way for the 80s invasion.
Some estimates are that 300,000 Space Invaders were produced worldwide.
