Space Raiders intro and game screen.

Space Raiders is a clone of the arcade smash Space Invaders. This is probably the Coco's closest version to the original arcade version, although it adds a bit to it. One thing it adds: when you shoot a mother ship (that scrolls by on the top of the screen), it doesn't simply blow up; it gets wounded, changes color, limps to the right side of the screen, and then flys down and lands. You can wrack up a whole pile of them as the game progresses. It was pointed out to me by a visitor to the site (named Charlie), that if you get 3 of them in a row on the side, that you get a free ship.
