Arcadia

Space Squadron  

Space Squadron is a very simplified version of the arcade game Defender.

On the back of the box, one can read:

Your mission is to drive your spacefighter and destroy as many mutants and aliens as possible. Also you must avoid the aliens shooting at or colliding with your spacefighter. You have three spacefighters ready for action. Fully utilize the radar to detect the enemy position. You can maneouver your spacefighter in any direction.

Great action - colour - sound effects.
High score remains on screen so next player can challenge.
Fun for all the family

'Level 1' has slow alien bullets.
'Level 2' has fast alien bullets.


Top left is your score, and top right is the hi-score. The area in between acts a radar to locate incoming enemies, just like in the original arcade game.

Note that there is no "GAME OVER" message when you loose your 3 lives. The game just hangs...



 SOFTWARE RELATIONS:

    Space Squadron was inspired by Defender (Arcade)
