Galaxy Invader 1000

One of the most recognisable electronic hand held games of its era, the game plays a very good version of Space Invaders, albeit with only three lines of aliens, it has excellent controls.

It has three skill levels via a switch, and a large fire button, and left right joystick.

Later there was a larger Galaxy 5000, which had 5 rows of aliens.

The machine was released in the UK by CGL, who also were responsible for bringing over the Sord series of computers.

Manufacturer: CGL
Date: 1980

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH50267. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
