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.
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.
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.
Nice game, classic. Real fun to play.
i too have found that the game freezes when you beat the first level perfectly. what gives?
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.
