Super Space Invaders
In 1679 first opera was performed; in 1779 the first cast iron bridge in the world was built; in 1879 Degas painted Dancers awaiting their Cue and in 1979 Toshiro Nishikado invented Space Invaders. Ah, the march of civilisation. I dont want to sound like Tony Palmer but when was the last time you played Gli Equivoci nellAmore? Or looked at Broseley bridge? Or payed ten pence to see a Degas? But I know youve played Space Invaders.
The game was manufactured by Taito, which had started off making pinball machines. The success of Space Invaders, took even them by surprise. So like any good software house, they churned out sequels until everyone got sick of the thing and moved on to Defender.
Super Space Invaders is the licensed version of the last, great incarnation. This features aliens that split in two or expand when shot, saucers that drop bombs, footballers, cattle kidnapping and end of level guardians. Its got 12 levels split up into several waves. This is a good, smooth implementation at a price that should make many shareware producers hang their heads in shame. Mark Burgess.
