Created by a company
called Taito around 1978, this is the ultimate in retro gaming. The graphics
are certainly nothing to write home about, in fact, you’d be crazy to
even consider it. Yet back in the day, this was cutting-edge technology.
How to Play
Move the laser
base using these controls on the keyboard:
Space Bar = Fire laser
Left Arrow = Move left
Right Arrow = Move right
If you hit the UFO, you’re rewarded with a “mystery” bonus score. It’s
game over after 3 lives, or if the invaders overrun the barracks. And
you only get one shot at a time, so make sure you hit that target!
You control the laser base (a pointy green blob) and have to defend your
planet (a green line) from those nasty space invaders (the white, moving
blobs). Yes, there are a lot of blobs, but the gameplay more than makes
up for that. And can you beat the new hiscore?
