Description of Invaders 1978

A standard clone of the classic arcade game Space Invaders made by Taito. You have to kill the small aliens before they reach the bottom of the screen. Really simple and straight to the point (no high score, no menu, no key remapping), released initially through mail, then distributed as a freeware.

This site is great, and I love all these classic games, but it would really improve the quality of the site to hire someone actually from the U.S. who is skilled at writing in American English to redo these descriptions!
