DESCRIPTION

Emulated in MAME ! [ARCADE] Video Game PCB

Cosmos © 1981 Century Electronics.


An early shoot'em up game. Destroy swarms of aliens and asteroids. If there are too many enemies on the screen, use the time warp to slow all your foes down.

This is one of the top candidates for Century's most blatant ripoff. Century copied everything from the laser temperature and fuel gauge to the docking to the mothership.
