>Just picked this up, has all original artwork and original manuals,

Some brief searching about this and came up with comments from UK's Andy W.

The Invaders

Its Space Invaders - but made by those clever blokes at Zaccaria who called it 'The Invaders' ! The game is virtually the same as space invaders, but you'll find a few subtle differences. The biggest difference is the sound, this has its own unique sound, quite unlike space invaders.

Zaccaria's "The Invaders" is emulated http://www.progettoemma.net/gioco.php?game=tinv2650

But it isn't complete when audio is likely not yet fully emulated such as any audio effects generated from discrete/analog hardware. That's where logic schematics (D-size foldout blueprint sheets?) would be helpful in case you have any of those that Zaccaria printed for "The Invaders". It's too bad neither couriersud nor Derrick are around these days since this is their area (analog hardware).

In the meantime, any scan such as the bezel piece or the interior backdrop artwork would be really welcomed since there is currently only an overlay layout support for The Invaders. If able to take photos of the interior to show what the interior looks like, thanks....if the photos can be posted on the MW artwork forum thanks. The current layout/artwork support file for The Invaders probably could use some improved updating.


>whats it worth if anything?

Maybe ask/post on UKVAG forums or also contact Andy W. since Andy is well versed with prices regarding European region arcade games/cabs.
