That secret Space Invaders game in Project-X

Has anybody successfully entered that level.
No matter what I do I always crash into the end-of-level boss instead of entering that level.

From HOL:

Quote:
If you fly into the first end of level baddie when its jaws opens
up, avoiding its fire and being careful not to touch it, you will
be presented with a version of Space Invaders. Complete one wave
and you will be given three extra lives and be thrown back into the fray.
I'm beginning to think it's a hoax, I've tried like 50 times now to no avail.

I posted at dream17.co.uk regarding that level and they also think it's fake.

I remember reading this in a magazine at the time but never got it to work.

I had both the original and the SE version, and the most I got it to do wash crash when you flew into its 'mouth'

This was actually in loads of mags at the time. Again I've completed the game and never found it, and couldn't get it to work when I did go looking for it. Let's face it, it doesn't exist.

Not as far as I'm aware no. There's one in Amiga Power, around summer '92 time I think, they all appeared around or after this time if I remember rightly.

Interesting that Bippy remembers seeing screenshots, I can't ever remember seeing any at all.

Now you mention it I vaguely remember screenshots, but I can't remember what they contained at all.

I remember trying it loads because this was "the game with no cheats", that was later found to be crao though

From EAGER:

If you fly into the first end of level baddie when its jaws opens up, avoiding it's fire and being careful not to touch it, you will be presented with a version of Space Invaders. Complete one wave and you will be given three extra lives and be thrown back into the fray.

tried with projectx se with the help of whd inf lives and limited collision detection. no ammount of flying into centre of the boss did anything.

im not skilled enough to get to the boss in Original projectx, the missiles that come from top and bottom and sorta track me got abit annoying and finished me off

It is a hoax. There were many of them in magazines during heyday of Amiga.
