80’s video games-Xevious

This game was released in late 1982, but I’m certain I never saw it until the summer of 1983. I know this because it became one of my favorite games right away. You have a ship called a Solvalou which is equipped with a zapper to shoot aerial invaders and you can drop bombs on the land bases and armored enemies. You move forever forward and various enemies move at different speeds. You  can be destroyed by being shot or colliding with an enemy. The game is challenging plus the graphics were I thought exceptional for the time. Even beyond that the sound effects always drew me in and they still do. Not all games from back then have held for me, but this one is still a classic game in my book.

I have watched far too many horror and sc-fi shows in my life. Now I feel the need to share this wealth of knowledge and make others suffer.
