Synopsis: From 1981-1983 I loved playing this game on my friend's Atari 2600. After my mom bought me an Atari 2600, my friend sold his Space Invaders cartridge to my brother. I was ticked off because he didn't offer to sell it to me first.
The arcade Space Invaders was made by Taito America Corp. This version was made by Atari.
In this game, there are six rows of invaders and six invaders per row. It's a good idea to shoot the bottom invaders first. The more invaders you shoot, the faster they move.
You get three shields. After you shoot so many groups of invaders, your shields disappear. You can't shoot the invaders lasers like on the arcade version.
You get three ships per game and can't get any extra ships. When your ship gets shot, it sounds more like a fart than a ship exploding.
Space Invaders is fun but can get quite boring. You do the same thing over and over again. I give Space Invaders a 5.
Best Cheats: Two shots:Press and hold the reset button as you turn on your Atari. This will let you fire two shots at once instead of one.
