Ladies and Gentleman, Welcome to the golden age.


Back in the 70's Taito released Space Invaders in the arcade. It was a huge success and began the golden age. They then re-released it onto multiple platforms, including this one. This port of the original arcade classic plays exactly like the original. However, there is no free version of this, meaning that you will have to buy the game to play it, The game features different styles of background and controls, which I personally like. Overall, I'm giving the authentic iOS port a 3/5, just because it's paid only. I would give a better rating if Taito added a free version with not too frequent advertisements. It's a shame that Taito was bought wholly by Square Enix.

Seems fine to me


I haven't played this game on my iPhone for quite a while, so I'm not familiar with the updates that people are complaining about. I just now played it for the first time in a long time, and I found it extremely enjoyable and I have no idea why people are complaining about the updates. I found it to be flawless and reminded me of the time when I worked as a dishwasher at a bar that had this game in 1981 and we would drill a hole in a quarter and used thin fishing line to get free games. Personally, I highly recommend this app.

What have you done to this??


Please get this right, all we want is original Taito Space Invaders, big on the screen with nothing else, now the control buttons are gone and what are these big blue stripes across the screen? I am happy to give a 5 star review when this is done right, please stop being so 'creative' with the app and give us the classic game
