A modern and 100 percent faithful JAMMA version of Taito's classic Space Invaders, but with a twist. There are several different games available to choose from: the upright and cocktail versions of the original plus the "colour overlay" versions. The best thing about this is that the colour overlay versions have the colour bars purposely OUT of alignment, anyone who remembers playing these originally will know that the strips of coloured plastic over the monitor were rarely in line with each other, and this purposeful sloppiness adds to the feel and realism of the "colour" game considerably. The game, however, sadly lacks an implementation of "Super Space Invaders 91", which would have made it complete in all ways.
