Ive made a few if anyone wants to take a look at them in unofficial user submitted cheevos. It could use some work though and a leaderboard.

Just had a quick look and it looks like you have got the achievement title and discriptions the wrong way round.

You need to add a reset if demo is playing.

And maybe a reset to your score achievements for losing all your lives.

I like the achievement art, looks like you spent some time doing them. 👍

Also did you check with salsa to see if she was working on the game as she has mapped some address?

My bad on that. It was quickly done and my knowledge is limited. Was fun for what little I know. I havnt talked to salsa but she if free to use whatever I have done as needed. No credit necessary.
In no way complete just had fun with it for a few hours messing with the code.
Thanks on the art. It was actually done kinda poorly in my option but Im a artist so Im always critical of any type of art I do.

I want to fix and finish the set, can I work on it Spawncalibur?

I could use your help with cheevo names/descriptions/art, incase you fell like helping me out :)

2 leaderboards added already btw :)

Clean the board 1/2/5 times
Clean the board 1/2/3 times without being hit
Clean the board without completely loosing any defense
Clean the board before the monsters advance the second time (don't think no advancing at all is possible)
Kill the bonus guy 1/3 times
Wait till the monsters crush your defence line, then kill em all without dying

If we want to go nuts on it we can do something like kill the top line without hitting any other monster.

Make sure to add proper title card instead of a cover box that's already on Box Art.

unfortunatly Space Invaders for atari2600 doesnt have a title screen - not sure what i do put in there.

I've noticed that if you go over 9999 points and the counter starts from 0000 again,the score can't be recorded in the leaderboard.

It CAN be recorded. But alternate sumbit condition should be done. Perhaps manual submition at 99xx points with certain combination entered. Or when the value goes to 00xx from 99xx, use delta value for submition.
