Space Invaders has today landed on its 50 billionth hardware format, with the iPad “HD” version arriving for download on the App Store. It’s no third-party clone – series inventor Taito is behind this.
Which means you get the original graphics and black background, introduced via the famously iconic – and completely unrelated to the appearance of the actual game – Space Invaders artwork. Plus two-player mode on the same iPad, thanks to the old tabletop machine’s two-player mode. That ought to actually work rather well. It’s yours for $5.99. [Apple via Pocker Gamer]
