(Space Invaders - Fukkatsu no Hi)
Space Invaders Fukkatsu no Hi is a shooter by Taito and based on the arcade game Space Invaders. Fukkatsu no Hi translates as 'The day of resurrection', and this edition of the game includes two versions of Taito's seminal classic. The first one is a straight port of the old school Space Invaders originally released in 1978, where the player controls a cannon located at the bottom of the screen and tries to stop a formation of descending alien invaders. The second game is called Space Invaders Plus and features updated graphics, sounds and gameplay heavily borrowed from Majestic Twelve. Just like with the original game, the player controls a AIT-50 cannon (or AIF-73CA spaceship later in the game) located at the bottom of the screen and must take down waves of alien invaders. But this version adds a few little extras into the mix - alien mother ships now occasionally drop temporary power-ups (extra lives, shields, homing missiles, shower bombs, time freeze and so forth). Each area in the game features graphical variations, such as a large variety of alien invaders and backgrounds. The cannon is also equipped with shields and can absorb several hits before being knocked out.
