Everyone, unless they have spent most of their lives upside down with their head in a bucket, must now know the rules of Space Invaders, and Artic's version is no different. Successive waves of aliens travel across and down the screen in multicoloured ranks, firing missiles at your laser base (you have three) as they go.

Artic's game offers nine levels of play and four different variations. The game is well presented, the graphics are fast and smooth, and the sound is reasonable - well, how many different noises can an alien make?

Control of your base is straightforward, the keys being well spaced, and playing couldn't be simpler. Instructions and scoring details are given on loading and before each new game.
