    No i think it was called space invaders or something like that....
    .......paratroopers was also like that but was much slower and had these chaps with parachutes opening up and once they landed on the ground they blew up your Anti-aircraft guns........

    "The video game John Connor is playing at The Galleria is Missile Command, a game where you are supposed to stop nuclear missiles from hitting cities."

    there are a lot of clones of that game too , many available on atari ROM sites . u can use emulators to play them on the computer . they come in really small sizes per ROM . many sites offer them for free . around 400 .bin games files come to around just 4mb

    For all you lovers of the 1978 classic SpAcE InVaDeRs here are some screenshots of the latest verison from Activision....

    http://www.psxextreme.com/scripts/scrs/scr.asp?scrid=30

    Enjoy :p History of space invaders......by a fanatic like myself

    Space Invaders arrived on the scene in 1978. In Japan there was a Yen shortage and many stores and shops converted into Space Invader parlours overnight to cash in on the craze. It was not unheard of for some shop keepers to erect giant speaker systems outside their shops blasting the what was to become familiar thudding sound of ever advancing Invaders.

    The game was designed and programmed by a certain Mr Toshihiro Nishikado.
    The game was licensed from Taito by Midway. There were several sequels to it as well - Space Invaders Part II, Deluxe and Super Space Invaders 91 there was also a cocktail table version.

    Many rip off versions where made about this time to cash in on the craze. Atari at this same time had brought out the VCS Home Console System. It was not selling too well until Atari negotiated with Taito for exclusive home rights to Space Invaders. Atari went on to produce a brilliant version in February 1980.

    People then bought the console simply to play Space Invaders. Half a million cartridges were sold in Britain alone in that year. The home version had an incredible 112 variations on the theme. Rick Mauer the programmer of the game received, it is rumoured only $11,000, the game went on to gross more then $100 million, not surprisingly Rick left Atari suffering "programmers burnout" and an empty pocket.
