- I'm not sure I've ever played the original, but this clone feels very authentic. If I were to judge it purely by how well it replicates the original, I'd have to give it a perfect score. However, this is 2005, and while I love remakes, I think a highscores list, better graphics (the original ones could always be provided as an alternative theme or maybe switched on/off as part of the gameplay) and more gameplay elements are required.
- It's a pretty good old classic, and just as tricky as the origional. I liked it quite a bit.
- v0.8: It's a Space Invaders clone. And a good one too, very accurate. Nothing special though - 3.5/5
