Assuming it's not a homebrew called 'Space Invaders 2: Blobs of Doom'... :wink:

From the colour palette it looks like a C64 game, perhaps time for a clue?

Galactic Plague?

EDIT: No, it's missing the side bar and I'm sure that was CPC only, thinking about it?

I had the ST version and was glad I didn't pay for it. Smooth scrolling, bit it was ugly and no fun. The player ship is far too big for starters.

Looks like Ant doesn't want to post a screen shot. I know the game - but C'mon Ant :)

It's Goldrunner (1987) on the Atari ST (or maybe the Amiga port).
