Space Invaders and Space Invaders Part II are the featured games meticulously represented in this expansive collection along with seven unique Extra Game modes representing other styles of the genre such as; Moon Base, Space Wars and Space Kings to name a few!
Space Invaders (Part I) was the first fixed shooter and set the template for the entire shoot 'em up genre. The goal is to defeat wave after wave of descending aliens with a horizontally moving laser to earn as many points as possible. A UFO flying saucer will sometimes fly above, delivering extra points if you're accurate enough to shoot it.
Space Invaders Part II is the direct sequel to Space Invaders, whereby the player again controls a laser base that must destroy formations of descending aliens, while avoiding their projectiles but this time new features have been added, such as aliens that split into two when shot, a new type of flying saucer that drop off additional alien troops to the fray, the player able to save their name with their highscore, new points bonuses and even short cutscenes in-between stages.
The Extra Game modes all give a new spin to the genre with different graphics, unique gameplay twists and new surprises keeping everything fresh, exciting and challenging so the fun never ends!
