I played the hell outta Space Invaders back in the day but, as far as being probably the best 2600 Invaders-type shooter. . . I'm gonna have to rank 'em like this:



Phoenix - fantastic port, very nicely done as far as capturing the arcade's gameplay and the graphics were very good for the 2600, too. Solid "A" game.

Demon Attack - terriffic overall game - very sharp graphically for the 2600

Space Invaders - old time greatness

Does Galaga not count?


Galaga always counts!

It's the best "Space Invader typy shooter" EVER !


(unfortunately it was never an Atari 2600 game though, so this would be the exception where it actually does not count.) ;)

This is one of the most interesting polls i have seen for a while :cool: ,i had to really think hard about it and even replay some games to help me decide.

Straight away i narrowed it down to just five games :-Demon Attack,Galaxian,Megemania,Phoenix and Space Invaders but after deep thought Phoenix gets the vote,i think its a job well done and as it is quite fast paced it satisfies my short attension span more lol

I voted Gorf. Despite the fact that it doesn't come close to the original arcade version, I still think it's a decent port.


A couple others I haven't seen mentioned: the homebrew Juno's First (or perhaps this isn't considered a Space Invaders type game?)


Spacechase -- I know it's kind of cheesy, but I think it has a really cool retro vibe to it :P
