Space Intruders is a Coco 3 only arcade clone of the original arcade smash Space Invaders, although with much better graphics. The original arcade game featured monochrome graphics, with not much detail, while Nick's version uses the Coco 3's 320x200x16 color mode. Nick also added a twist: you can actually win the game by destroying the alien's mothership on level 9 (see screenshot). This particular screen is based on the 5th level of the arcade game Phoenix, also seen in the Coco 1/2 clone of Phoenix called Demon Seed. This game was actually sold through Radio Shack in Australia for a time, but was sold in North America through Game Point Software.
