Space Invaders HD for iPad Includes Tabletop Two-Player ModeS

Space Invaders has today landed on its 50 billion billionth hardware format, with the iPad "HD" version arriving for download on the App Store. It's no third-party clone—series inventor Taito is behind this.

Which means you get the original graphics and black background, introduced via the famously iconic—and completely unrelated to the appearance of the actual game—Space Invaders artwork. Plus there's two-player action on the same iPad, thanks to a cocktail cabinet style game. That ought to actually work rather well. It's yours for $4.99. [Apple via Pocket Gamer]
