Arcade classic Space Invaders hits the App Store


Taito has released its classic Space Invaders game for the iPhone and iPod touch. The game offers a faithful recreation of the arcade experience, providing a simulated cabinet mode with on-screen joystick, button, and arcade-style display; touch/drag and tilt controls are also available, along with four different screen modes. In addition, it features bonus extras including materials from the original game’s development. Disappointingly, the game does not include any of the features of Taito’s later, better Space Invaders sequels, including the well-regarded Space Invaders Extreme. Space Invaders is available now from the App Store and sells for $5.

I agree… $5?  I’d pay $5 for Dragon’s Lair, Rage, or Golden Axe II.  But Space Invaders?  I’m not that nostalgic!
