Taito's Super Space Invaders

Super Space Invaders is a video game developed and published by Taito Corporation, released in 1991. It's a sequel to the classic arcade game Space Invaders, which was originally released in 1978 and is one of the most iconic video games of all time.
In Super Space Invaders, the core gameplay mechanics remain similar to the original Space Invaders, where the player controls a ship moving horizontally across the bottom of the screen, shooting at waves of alien invaders descending from the top. One notable addition is the inclusion of power-ups. Additionally, the game features a variety of different enemy types with unique behaviors and attack patterns.

Taito's Super Space Invaders review

Electronic Games (1992): "This is a terrific game game, one likely to keep people glued to their PC's when they should be eating or sleeping. It's said, that when the original was released to video arcades, people would lie, cheat and steal to play, When it hit the home entertainment market, they spent their grocery money to buy it. It probably won't happen with this version—people are so sophisticated these days—but it's possible."
