Description
One of the most cloned games in history and a real classic.

The colour (as seen in the picture) was not produced on screen but by coloured overlays. This is why the menu screen has odd green and red parts, and missiles change colour as they pass down the screen.

Space Invaders was the first game to feature a high scores chart. But it didn't remember player names, or even initials.
