Phoenix Revenge

      From all the titles that tried to capitalize on the fame of Space Invaders, this is probably one of the most accomplished efforts. What set phoenix apart from the competition back in 1980 were its diverse stages, the imaginative spaceships that attacked you in mixed patterns, and of courseā€¦ the awesome final boss. It was one of the earliest full color games, and it allowed you to alternate shooting with activating a shield, which added a nice strategic touch to the action.
