Space Invaders


Space Invaders

Space Invaders is one of the most iconic arcade games in history. This classic title, designed by Toshihiro Nishikado was launched for the first time in 1978 by the Taito Co company.

The world’s most played shoot ‘em up

Space Invaders is one of the first videogames that was launched on the market, and it quickly gained popularity all over the world, with a simple but addictive premise. It is a basic two-dimensional alien killer, with simple and colorful graphics.

The player controls a laser gun that moves sideways over the screen. In the upper part, several rows of different types of aliens appear, which start to move down and attack a number of structures that work as shields, protecting the enemy firing cannon, but which are gradually destroyed every time they are touched.

It´s your objective to stop the alien invasion, and to achieve this you must shoot against the enemies until you clear the screen of aliens. They will advance faster and faster, and when they reach your gun, the challenge is over and you’ll have to start from scratch. Now and then a flying saucer will move across the screen, and if you manage to hit it, this will increase your score. The game continues indefinitely until you are defeated, so you’ll have to get as high a score as you can.
