"Can't give minus score for this."

April 13, 2012  |  By haematoma

 |  Version: Space Invaders 1978 2.0

Pros

No pros at all.

Cons

AVG antivirus just absolutely hated this download so it was immediately dumped off my machine.

Summary

This might be a good game but as I've had a machine destroyed in a virus attack before I take no chances with anything remotely dodgy. I haven't bothered to try and find out exactly why AVG didn't like this, it may be that there was no problem at all but I was taking no chances.

Pros

It can be removed from your hard-drive.

Cons

None that I can think of.

"Original and the Best"

November 30, 2009  |  By pgeorge23

 |  Version: Space Invaders 1978 2.0

Pros

Ok, so its old and there have been better games arround for years, but this will rin on just about any Microsoft OS no matter how useless your computer is. And for those who say it doesnt work, you just need to press enter at the start of the game.

Cons

Well like I said its old so the graphics arent up to much, but its still a great game to play.

Summary

Well its just amazing isnt it?

"Accurate, and with sound."

January 05, 2007  |  By arrrrrgh

 |  Version: Space Invaders 1978 2.0

Pros

This is about as close to the original arcade game as is possible.

It does have sound - for XP users, search the internet for VDMSound and download and install it. To play the game, right click on the game exe and select Run with VDMS.

To start a game, press Enter at the GAME OVER message.

Cons

Will make you late for work.
