ALIEN STORM - A remake of the Arcade classic Space Invaders for multiple retro systems


I'm sure many of you remember Space Invaders, a game that was first released way back in 1978 in the Arcades in Japan with a further release made available in the United States and a much later version in the 1980's on the Atari 2600.  Well if you do remember it, or more especially its clones and inspired games, you might be interested to know that spotlessmind1975 has done a remake of the game and released it as Alien Storm for the C64, VIC-20 (with expansion memory installed), PLUS/4, C128 and Atari.


Although we are not sure of what exactly was remade especially as so many clones of Space Invaders are out in the wild, what we do know according to the creator. ALIEN STORM was written in a short time thanks to the primitives made available by the "midres" library as a participate in the challenge of Retro Programmers Inside.
