Space Invaders


n64gm169 - Developed by Z-Axis, Ltd. and Published by Activision, Inc., "Space Invaders" was released for the Nintendo 64 (N64) Entertainment System on November 30, 1999. Space Invaders is an old atari 3rd-Person Perspective arcade game classic that has been enhanced and imported to the Nintendo 64. But don't be fooled, while the game retains its nostalgic charm and remains as close to its arcade roots as needed, it is different enough to stand on its own with many new features, power-ups and enemies. The game scenario is short and sweet. After an attack by aliens in 1978 was repulsed by earth, twenty years pass and the invaders are back with a vengeance. There are three difficulty levels where you can go from novice to expert, and more than a hundred levels. There are 13 alien species, mostly red, green, blue, and yellow. But there are also seven others just waiting for the opportunity to blow you away. There are also 10 nicely rendered and large Bosses you'll have to defeat in order to gain the victory for earth. You can play by yourself against the AI computer ships or play with one or two friends against the Alien horde. As in the original, the ships fly down the screen in rows and columns. Visit many different worlds, including the planets Pluto, Saturn, Mars, Venus and Earth. They all feature dynamic terrain and interactive backgrounds. You receive special one shot power-ups by shooting four of the same type of alien invaders in a row. In this N64 version of Space invaders, the Mother Ships flies above the action as in the original, but here if you hit them you can pick up power-ups like shields or double shots that can help you immensely in your battles. The game graphics are good for the era it was created in, the controls excellent and the sound is top notch, which means hours of challenge and fun that will keep many gamers busy. Also a little tip--if you can manage to beat Space Invaders and finish the game, you'll be able to play a reproduction of the original coin operated game. So have at it! The game is called Space Invaders 64, and in Japan, "Space Invaders X". Pre-owned - Includes Game Only, no manual or instructions are included.
