TRIVIA

Space Invaders Deluxe was released in November 1979 by Midway, under license from Taito.

Space Invaders Deluxe still says 'Space Invaders Part II' on the title screen because Midway was only allowed to make minor modifications of the Taito code. All other references to the game (promotional material, manual, service bulletins, labels on the motherboard, serial number tags inside the cabinet, monitor glass, etc.) say 'Space Invaders Deluxe'.

Space Invaders Deluxe uses a color overlay. Taito's "Space Invaders Part II" used a color monitor and a simple color generator board that turns anything that is not black to red when the player's base explodes during gameplay (but not during attract mode).

A Space Invaders Deluxe unit appears in the 1982 movie 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'.
