    Are they part of the old MAME game console for PC? (zipped ROM files).

    No - Defender, Galaxians AND Frogger and Pacman :D

    The implementation of Space Invaders is a bit disappointing....they don't speed up as they become fewer in number as I blast them into space dust....makes it too easy.

    Of, um, rather questionable legality....shhh.

    These things are likely under licence from somewhere.

    There's improved versions if you need them! Star Wars is available too! (one of the best from that era in my opinion)

    Ooh....vector graphics....was one of my favourites too....I also liked Tron, but it's difficult to do without the little spinning wheel things to control the arm.

    It's the usual case that to own the emulator was OK, but the ROMs are copyrighted and in some cases patented entities.

    Some manufacturers allowed free distribution, though, but it depends on what the games are / were.

    I never said I got the ROMs for free! :eek: (... but that was when I first came online years ago when I got the emulator)

    Sorry Tom - the comment wasn't directly aimed at you.....more at people who may go off for a casual google search.

    Apologies.
