- 7th December 2009: Mr. Do - Thanks to some great photos as Derek's Basement Arcade, I added in instruction cards to the bezels for Lunar Rescue.

- 2nd May 2009: Mr. Do - Antny did an awesome job on the really flaky Lunar Rescue artwork, which we had courtesy of the BYOAC/CAG artwork.

- 0.125u9: Gyrovision and David Haywood added clone Moon Lander (bootleg of Lunar Rescue).

- 0.123u1: RansAckeR added DIP locations for Lunar Rescue. Changed 'Unknown' dipswitches to 'Unused'.

- 0.113u2: Changed 8080 CPU clock speed to 1996800 Hz, visible area to 224x260 and VSync to 59.541985 Hz.

- 0.109u1: Robert correct samples being used in Lunar Rescue and clones. Changed SN76477 to Speaker sound and added samples (alienexplosion, rescueshipexplosion, beamgun, thrust, bonus2, bonus3.wav, shootingstar, stepl and steph.wav).

- 0.107: David Haywood added clone Lunar Rescue (Model Racing bootleg).

- 18th March 2006: Corrado Tomaselli dumped Lunar Rescue (Model Racing bootleg).

- 0.61: Changed palettesize back to 8 colors.

- 0.34b8: David Winter added clone Galaxy Rescue (bootleg?).

- 0.25: Valerio Verrando fixed the Space Invaders driver to include high score saving and 100% arcade-perfect colors for Lunar Rescue; since some bootleg machines did not use this colorful overlay, Destination Earth retains the Space Invaders color scheme. Game is playable with accurate colors and sound. Control: Arrows = Move around, CTRL = Fire and T = Activate Tilt. Known issues: A free credit is awarded on the first docking of the first game.
