Space Invaders (Japan) for Game Boy
I don't know what games to review. Good game, bad games, common games, uncommon games?
Anyways here is the Japanese version of Space Invaders. I feel sorry for anyone who buys it. This version was only released in Japan, and I think it is hard to find a simpler made game. I think I could have written this game myself in BASIC.
This game only seems to use two colors: black and white. No shades of grey.
If you are a hard core Space Invaders fan, you might enjoy this game. Even the first level is hard to beat.
I never liked Space Invaders, even when I first played it on my C64. It was a game that you got to play during the loading screen of F-15 Strike Eagle, I think, or some other game. Later I played it on an 286 but it just felt lame, difficult and pointless.
I give the game 1/5.
I think the box art is kind of cool though. Simple and stylish, as they were in Japan.
