The first video game about Waves was released on July 1981.

Trendy Entertainment, Tripwire Interactive and 505 Games has published most of these games

The waves can come sequentially after one another or at somewhat rigid intervals, so if the player can't deal with the prior wave, he'll have two or more waves to deal simultaneously.
