This is the more familiar / common Space Invaders package. It is a cartridge. The other Atari 8-Bit version in the museum was distributed as a cassette. In the game, the player must defend the Earth from a marching collection of intergalactic meanies. The player moves back and forth across the bottom of the screen, ducking under barriers while zapping aliens. If the aliens reach the bottom of the screen, the game is over. If the player eliminates each alien on the screen, he / she is presented with another, faster moving, group of aliens.
