I'm sorry, but this is historically inaccurate.

The chip-fossil records show no evidence that the space invaders were ever colored, and premier archaeoludologist Dmitri Krishnakov has cataloged a compendium all the sound files ever used in pre-millennial games. The sounds and music you use are nowhere to be found in his exhaustive research.

Though I for one find the graphics and sound changes to be a welcome upgrade from the days of yore.

Dmitri Krishnakov is a shyster and a fraud whose fame and attention is ill-deserved! Anyone who disputes the existence of seminal classics like Tetriman Pacs and Castle Doom-Life is clearly on the outside of the field.

As another guy said...

Nice concept, the only thing that it's a 9 and not a 10 are the explosions, they are too annoying for eyes... The quick changing of those colors it's not a good idea for eyes.

jonathansfox responds:

Yeah, the explosions are pretty shoddy. We use them because they're straight from Missile Command -- I think we even got the right color sequence. Back in those days, they didn't have enough colors (or computer power) to make really good looking explosions, and flashing colors was the best the developers came up with.

Absolutely brilliant...

A wonderful mix of retro gold. It plays well, difficulty ramps up quickly (as it should) and the gameplay of all three have been sewn together wonderfully.

cool concept

i too have found that the game freezes when you beat the first level perfectly. what gives?


jonathansfox responds:

I would like to know what gives too. I guessed it might be medal related, but I just tested this out with an alternate account that doesn't have the medals yet, and still wasn't able to reproduce a game freeze after beating the first level perfectly -- I just got two medals and the game continued. Anyone else who has this issue, please PM me with your operating system, browser, and Flash version information, to help me to find and kill this bug. You can find out your version of Flash here:
