Space War

Original is by Sanritsu. There are 3 bootlegs-first is by Leisure & Allied that seems the same except in full color, but Space War Part 3 is missing the music when you die, get a bonus life, etc. and Space Wipeout is missing the name entry after you beat the 1st wave of aliens, plus it froze when the aliens got down to the bottom and I had to reset. Also, some of these don't have correct bonus life dips, giving you extra life at 2,000 when it's set to 1,000, etc. Maybe these need looking at more closely.

Re: Space War

It's "spacewars" that has the music, not spacewr3.

Re: Space War

Thanks. The original had music because it included a DAC that most other games in this driver, 8080bw, don't have, but even though the bootlegs have a DAC also, spacewr3 has no music at all, which may be right or may be an emulation problem, while swipeout having no name entry after you beat the 1st wave may be right or may be related to the game freezing when the aliens reach the bottom. These old Invaders clones are very confusing to sort out because there were hundreds of them, many of them being illegal bootlegs.
