Maze Invaders (c) 1981 Atari.


Even if copyrighted 1981 (MCMLXXXI), this game got to field test (June, 1982), but obviously failed field tests. 2 machines exist.

Test screens from Maze Invaders were in the movie 'Cloak and Dagger'.

MAME Info:

0.121u2 [Aaron Giles]

Artwork available


- The controls are somewhat like Food Fight in the way that they need to be 'calibrated' as you play or before you start by pushing a couple seconds in each direction to assign the boundries.

- The second button makes an audible tone while playing the game but does not appear to be used in any capacity in the game. The prototype cabinet (looks like it was made from a Tempest cabinet shell) shows 2 buttons, so it is mapped.


- 0.141: sxevious and Tafoid hooked up cocktail mode and proper controls for both players in Maze Invaders, adding button labels to describe the action of each. Added 2nd player and 'Cabinet' dipswitch.

- 0.140u3: Tafoid fixed up Maze Invaders inputs, adding notes. Fixed up DIP locations to match open/closed states shown in service modes for the Centiped driver. Changed 2 players input to 1, buttons from 4 to 3 and coin slots to 3.

- 6th September 2010: Mr. Do - Maze Invaders has shiny new artwork, thanks to Antny for fixing it up, based on pics supplied by Scott Safestuff.

- 0.122u8: Zsolt Vasvari removed colortables from Maze Invaders and a number of other drivers, as part of a larger move to phase out old-style colortables. Changed palettesize to 1040 colors.

- 0.121u2: Aaron Giles added Maze Invaders (prototype) (Atari 1981).
