The original "Space Invaders"

After countless clones, this is the real thing. I find it a bit odd they took the time to port the original game, though.

The UI mimics different machines, sort of like the LCD game clones in the app store. It even has different "screen" style apparently.

Looks like a good pick for retro nuts (Blake).

Space Invaders $4.99

edit:
If this is too "before your time," a $.99 knock off came out at the same time.

Nice to see the original one!

Main graphics look small tho... I hope I'm wrong.

I'm so sick of the retro games that keep coming out. I want something new, fresh, original, and wasn't breath-taking back in 1978.

Yeah, I looked for it too a while back, but it was already gone. It seemed like the closest game graphically to the original "Space Invaders."
Oh, well...
I almost laughed when I saw the $4.99 price for the new TAITO version! That's about 3 bucks more than I am willing to pay. Wish I would have gotten "Invaders" before it was pulled...
