Bless, you'd better not let her see you being mowed down by a lawn mower or hit by a truck in Preppie! If she likes you being hit by poo have a go on Whomper Stomper ;)

maybe you're brain just works better at a faster pace, i think you should play all the games at 60hz! I had another good go getting to invasion 26, again, what are the chances of that :ponder: have a pb or inv 41 so will keep trying ;)

Vote for the next game here!

I'm also play on NTSC but 800XL. Perhaps, I need an accelerator so I can shoot faster. But there are bugs in this space invaders like shots falling from the sky out of the blue and unbreakable bunker points and some aliens being in limbo in space. This game resets after Invasion 11 so it's not like that other one where they the invaders stay low.

Now that I have power back, I shall have to try and improve, especially since y'all are MURDERING me on points this series...

They reset after wave 11 eh? Hmmm... I may have a chance to get some better scores then. I thought Bob was a button mashing God beating so many waves where one drop in level lands them on the planet. :P

If they reset after invasion 11, I may want to give it some more shots as that's where I got stuck and thought it wasn't worth it if they were all like that Invasion 11 afterwards.

Here's that bug atariksi:
Bug.jpg
I'm wondering if the stray shot that sometimes comes down from the top of the screen (after you shoot a mother ship?) was meant to be the big missile from the ship - in the coin-op it blasted down at high speed and even cut through the barriers with a nice eerie sound if I remember correctly. I wonder if they tried to implement this but didn't have time... another job for someone talented in 6502 :ponder:

that's another one for the excuse list ABP 'no power' ;)

AB Positive and Divya16 are also after you so you may be fourth or fifth and won't be able to show your face to humanity by the time this contest ends.

Yes, it does reset after invasion 11. But in invasion 12+, there's these little baby invaders that sometimes pop out once you shoot the normal invader but their starting height is back to normal as in invasion 1 in invasion 12.

Hint: in invasion 11, don't go after the spaceship. One miss of the invaders, and they land.

I guess they are minor bugs so can't be used as an excuse. Another "feature" of the game is that when the invaders are about to land and there is only one that is about to land and you shoot him (her/it) while it has started to land then even if you blow it up before it lands, it still lands and game is over. I guess I can't consider that a bug since it may be that the parts of the alien that blow up contaminate the earth and you lose the game.

I was able to make it once after wave 11... then royally screwed myself on wave 12. had 19K but no camera battery left.
