Rainbow Invaders Label Contest
April 30, 2006
Posted by Albert Submit News | Archives

Rainbow Invaders Label ContestRainbow Invaders is a new Space Invaders style game for the Atari 2600 from Italian developer Silvio Mogno. While many games of this nature have been released for the 2600 (to say nothing of the countless Space Invaders hacks), Silvio's game adds a breath of fresh air to the genre. Yes, you are shooting at descending waves of alien invaders, attempting to finish them off before they reach the ground. However, the aliens also periodically drop one of 16 random Special Shots, some of which will help and some of which will hinder your efforts if you catch them. Your ship also features a shield that will make you invulnerable for a few seconds, at the expense of not being able to fire again right away.

AtariAge and Silvio Mogno are sponsoring a contest to create original artwork for Rainbow Invaders This label artwork will appear on all copies of Rainbow Invaders, which will be available through the AtariAge Store. This artwork will also be featured on the cover of the manual created for Rainbow Invaders.You can learn more about how to enter the contest here.
