Game Description:

"Earthling, I have come to conquer your planet. You and your people shall be destroyed...wiped off the face of the cosmic universe forever... HA...HA...HA...HA!"

"I know not where you come from Astro Invader. But your evil intentions will not prevail. The Protector is on our side! Besides, a million light-years would pass before you could break through our defenses. It is you who shall be destroyed!"

Astro Invader may be our first video game, but it's already a proven gangbuster. It was tested in select markets prior to release. The profits were staggering. So staggering, in fact, that we almost named the game - Astronomical!
