Albert Posted March 8, 2006 Share Posted March 8, 2006 Rainbow Invaders is a new Space Invaders style game for the Atari 2600 from Italian developer Silvio Mogno. While many games of this nature have been released for the 2600 (to say nothing of the countless Space Invaders hacks), Silvio's game adds a breath of fresh air to the genre. Yes, you are shooting at descending waves of alien invaders, attempting to finish them off before they reach the ground. However, the aliens also periodically drop one of 16 random Special Shots, some of which will help and some of which will hinder your efforts if you catch them. Your ship also features a shield that will make you invulnerable for a few seconds, at the expense of not being able to fire again right away. You can download the binary here, which also includes a preliminary manual in PDF form. Silvio is looking for feedback and bug reports so he can further improve the game, which you can leave in this thread. PS: I know the game isn't new, it was in our In Development section for some time until I removed it. I just added it back today. The playable binary is new, though. ..Al Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
