You are Earth's last hope! It's a war between your laser base defense and the incoming hordes of Astro Invaders. Dodge the incoming invaders and their deadly impact explosions! Take out the flying saucers before they land and run off with your women! It's a relentless battle to the very end when you bring home the arcade thrill of Astro Invader!
Astro Invader is a flawless port of the fast-paced arcade game of the same name. Scott Huggins has brought the thrill of the arcade game home to your ColecoVision, faithfully reproducing the sights, sounds, and gameplay of the original. How many waves of alien invaders can you fend off before being overwhelmed?

With a never ending assault of alien invaders, you must prevent UFOs from landing as each Mother Ship unloads 200 alien craft. You move your laser base from side to side as the alien ships continue shooting at you while filling up the columns to the sides of the Mother Ship. Once any column is full, the alien invaders will fall out the bottom of that column towards you! Periodically, a UFO will come down and you must shoot it before it lands or your base is destroyed.
A very nice high quality effort, especially since this is Scott's first game! I am also looking forward to his next release on the ColecoVision...Spectar!
Also, very nice work by Joe Kollar on the label, box, and design. Extremely high quality!
OK now go admire the art too :)
