CHAMP Invaders is a DOS shareware remake of the classic Space Invaders arcade machine. Like the other games in CHAMProgramming's series of arcade remakes, it closely emulates the original with three game modes: The original "Classic" mode, the "Deluxe" mode and the enhanced "Champ" mode.
The "Classic" mode plays and feels much like the arcade machine, with very similar graphics, sound and gameplay -- moving left and right at the bottom of the screen, shooting up at a bunch of nasty alien dropping bombs, protected by three quickly degrading shields... You know it, or should!
The "Deluxe" mode has the same graphics as the "Classics" version, but adds more features and an intermission.
The "Champ" mode is an upgraded version of the classic game, featuring colourful VGA graphics, different types of aliens (some which break out of the formation and attack, others who take more than one shot to destroy, etc.), a much more dangerous UFO and more powerful weapons (you can shoot fireballs, destroying an entire column, and launch guided missiles).
Finally, the game features a variety of options -- one or two player modes, three difficulty settings, adjustable game speed, input by keyboard, mouse or joystick (Champ even released a "Champ cable" that allowed you to play the game with digital joysticks), and a high score table to round it all off.
The year is 2002, and we've finally made first contact with an alien race. Unfortunately, they're looking to take over Earth! Your mission: Stop wave after wave of advancing invaders with your laser cannon before they take over the planet! Use your shields to stop the incoming missiles. Try to destroy the alien general ships for even more points. In CHAMP Mode, a whole new batch of aliens are out to get you and use your guided missiles and fireballs to show off Earth's new defences.
Get ready to stop the invasion with Invaders. This game offers three modes of play: Classic, which is like an arcade version, CHAMP, which has enhanced graphics, sounds, and power-ups, and Deluxe Classic, which is like Classic with the addition of intermissions, splitting and dropping invaders, and much more.
If you are already a fan of the original Space Invaders game and maybe even some of the many clones available this version is yet another one that is worth giving a try. This version is also very faithful to the original version although the additional modes changes that a bit around but those are of course optional.
The description at CHAMP Games Fan Page says it all about this excellent remake of ATARI's classic arcade shooter Space Invaders:
"Get ready to stop the invasion with CHAMP Invaders. This game offers three modes of play: Classic, which is like an arcade version, CHAMP, which has enhanced graphics, sounds, and power-ups, and Deluxe Classic, which is like Classic with the addition of intermissions, splitting and dropping invaders, and much more."
CHAMP games are notable for excellent graphics, faithful recreation of arcade originals, and a smooth, addictive gameplay that brings the much-loved classic to a new generation of gamers, as well as old-timers who will enjoy the CHAMP levels. If you love the arcade original, you will doubtless enjoy this wonderful remake from one of the best shareware companies in the business.
