Taito's all time classic and its wave of descending aliens is back for the Super Famicom system. Does Space Invaders still need a presentation ?.. Here we go. A fleet of alien invaders moves across the screen and slowly descends towards Earth, with their now popular continuous beeps slowly frying your brain. If one of them lands on the ground, then it is game over. The player controls a gun at the bottom of the screen and his mission is to stop the invasion. To make this task a bit easier, the player can hide underneath destructible shields. The game offered here is the original arcade game, including the black and white version, but also the colored-layer and Midway's planet surface edition. However, a two-player battle mode has been added where two opponents can compete against each other in a split screen battle. Taito most probably released this version to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the game originally released in 1978.

Space Invaders for the Super Famicom is a bit disappointing and a missed opportunity. I was hoping for an upgraded version of some sort, with fancy graphics and an upgraded soundtrack, a bit like the fun HuCard version available for the PC Engine system. But no, this is all you get, a perfect replica of the original black and white arcade game. Only a two-player battle-mode (even if great) has been added. Although we are dealing here with a milestone in video game history, the game looked very dated back in 1994, and it looks even more dated today.
