Lunar Rescue [Blaze Kit] 5,920 points
Avatar of Serious

The Blaze Kit is an add-on for Midway Space Invaders or Space Invaders Deluxe machines that adds the ROMs for 8 games compatible with Midway's Space Invaders hardware. This only works in these two specific Midway arcade machines. All of the original hardware on the arcade board is still used to run the game once this add-on is installed. (The add-on just provides the ROMs and a menu for selecting them.)

My cabinet is a Midway Space Invaders Deluxe.

Whoa! that's pretty psychedelic, i seem to recall that these were black & white screens projected onto a mirrior with a multi coloured film attached, is that correct ?

Yes, that is essentially correct.

There is a black and white monitor covered with a colored film. A piece of glass is used to reflect that image for display. Behind the glass is a 3D background made of two cardboard pieces: the planet surface in the foreground, and the sky/atmosphere in the background.
