Otherwise, the perfect emulation of the all-time best videogame. Thank you, Tomohiro Nishikado, for a lifetime of inspiration.

This game is the definition of retro. Ducking behind shields and hiding behind aliens is so fun. Short and sweet One of the best games ever made

I’m so disappointed with the design of this game. The controls are slow to respond, the shooter is TERRIBLY SLOW, and it frequently knocks you out of the game entirely when you move the controller, which also frequently causes you to have your ship destroyed when you resume the game. Not happy with this purchase.

I purchased this games because I have spent much time playing this as a kid in the arcade. I like this port for a number of reasons. First, as a retro-gamer, I am particular about a game being emulated/recreated to be faithful to the original. This version of Space Invaders does this very well. I especially liked how the developer recreated the different looks with the overlays, color, and black/white. This was a nice touch. The original art, which appeared on the arcade machine are also provided. Second, I praise the developer for recreating the original feel of the controls, at least as well as could be done on a touch platform. The ship moves at the speed as it did in the arcade. Lastly, the genius of this port is also in what it did not try to do, which is try to recreate the original game, which was only several thousand kilobytes into a game that takes about 40 or 50 megabytes. Too many other ports do this and thereby lose the feel of the original. This developer kept it sweet, simple, and to the point, which is recreating the original arcade experience. A landscape option (as others have noted) would be nice, but it does not make or break the game in my opinion. It is most playable on touch devices the way it is. My only complaint of this port is the cost. $4.99 is a bit steep in my opinion, though I guess one could argue: then why did you purchase it if you thought it was too expensive? If you really loved this game then I recommend it (even at the expensive price).

I only recently found this little gem although it looks like it's been around awhile (and not updated, for that matter). Overall a good re-creation of the game I fed my allowance to back in 1977. Sound and graphics exactly as I remember! Couple issues: - accelerometer control doesn't work at all - something's up with getting this on both iPhone and iPad, I finally was able to without paying twice, it shouldn't be that hard It seems that Taito put this out and has neglected it since. C'mon guys, this is the game that MADE you. Oh, and could we get "Deluxe Space Invaders" also? Thanks.

Controls on different setting all seem to be lagging in sensitivity and delay on joy stick or buttons..making it really hard to make accurate moves! Not sure why they can't fix the issue as this should not have any glitches for a price of $4.99

This game is awesome. If they'd just utilize the sdk available for ion's icade support this game would be retro bliss!!!
