Summary

Space Invaders is one of the first games that gets mentioned when you talk about retro gaming, it’s a classic and has many many iterations and revamps over the years. Here we have a collection that boasts the best of those iterations and revamps. It’s a tall order but they do a good job of not only the vast collection but the fact that they go a little bit further by having a short bio of the game along with release date and best scores. Online leaderboards mean the replay value is there, the local multiplayer is a nice touch but it is a hot seat take turns kinda deal and no o line multiplayer is here. I loved having all the games in one handy collection and they play really well, the game settings are not plentiful but are meaningful because I mean, who doesn’t want a quick save and reload feature? Flipping the screen around is one for the purists and the game does look good. At the end of the day, this collection is the definitive Space Invaders collection and a must for retro gamers and the curious.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
