Faithful representation of the original

Like the previous comment I was nearly put off buying this. To all those complaining about the speed I suggest you try and find the original arcade game and have a go. There is nothing wrong with the speed of this game as its exactly the same as the original. I can only guess that those complaining about the speed have been playing recent shmup games and have gotten used to faster playing games and think this should be the same. The screen size could be bigger though, but apart from that what you are buying here is a faithful representation of the original arcade game.

Good fun, but . . . .

As a child of the 80's I used to spend countless hours down the arcade playing this and other games like it.

For those of us that remember this is a pretty good representation, ok it can be a bit sluggish at times and the screen could be utilised better but that's what we love about it!

One problem I've found is that none of my high scores above 4990 remain in place if I leave the app. Don't remember that happening in the arcade!!

Retro fun but missed opportunities

Really like the app - comments about sluggish controls aren't really fair - you can change controls in options to support drag or accelerometer. Sluggishness replicates the original.

Worth price for the retro experience but disappointing to see two player version doesn't use landscape mode - that would make it much more realistic to the original pub table style versions.

Finally the menu options do make it look like an enlarged iPhone app. App is good but would benefit from further improvements.

Images show the InvaderCade, NOT the iCade - an expensive but awesome way of getting a mini arcade version of Space Invaders
