Invinco / Deep Scan

Invinco / Deep Scan (c) 05/1980 Sega.

Invinco is a game inspired by "Space Invaders", with some innovation on the aliens: One row blinks in and out of view, another row's aliens roll so as to make themselves harder or easier to hit, and a third row of aliens each take (at least) three hits to kill. A fourth row has aliens that turn into bombs, blowing up everything around them to make your job somewhat easier.

Deep Scan is a sub hunting game.

For Invinco :

* Time your shots when aiming at certain targets. The white aliens turn invisible on you, so try to hit them when they're visible on the screen. Also, there's a period of time that the top aliens are invulnerable to your shots while they change to another form; wait a second or so before shooting them again so you don't waste shots and time.
