Space Invaders - A highly recommended PC remake of an Atari 2600 hit is now available

If you've been following Richard Langford of Langford Productions, you would've known that throughout these last few years he has released a number of remakes of some well known classics that many have grow up with, games such as PSSST, Cookie, and even The Hunch. But that isn't all that has come out of Langford, as after previously releasing the retro inspired hit of Project ZX, he has now made available the remake of the classic arcade 1980's Atari 2600 shooter 'Space Invaders' for the PC.

Space Invaders was first released way back in 1978 in the Arcades and was developed by Tomohiro Nishikado and published by Taito in Japan with a further release made available in the United States. It wasn't until the 1980's that this hit game appeared on the Atari 2600 which helped push the game to a huge boost of sales. That same game, which as we said was a hit, has now ended up in the hands of Richard Langford, who has not only added additional play modes but has also remade the game in a total of 8 graphical styles!

Space Invaders by Langford Productions is a very high grade and highly recommended download for anyone who wants to relive the classic game but with added extras. Not only can you play this brilliant classic with a combination of play modes such as moving shields and even a two player mode, but you can also play the game in other graphical styles such as the ZX Spectrum style above or the Blocky one below that.

What's more, the game is very smooth, the controls are precise, the sounds and music are fantastic and if you closed your eyes you would think you were still at the arcades!  So download it now, you'll not be disappointed.
