released in 1998, space bomber is psikyo does space invaders. in addition the bullet patterns and power-up icons, space bomber adds a new and very interesting mechanic: the ability to snatch invaders with a grabby arm and either reprogram them to fight for you (by holding down the shoot button strikers style and then releasing it) or launch them back at the others as a bomb (by holding shoot and then pressing the grab button). enemies destroyed in this way will release bonus money bags that can be grabbed for points; occasional bonus waves will allow you to rack up lots of points this way.

the movie is a demo replay of the first two worlds (that's eight stages). (the frame rate gets a little choppy during the fourth boss. i'm sorry.)
