Earth Invaders - CPC - Mode 1

Handheld games such as Earth Invaders would be an excellent new way of creating games on the Amstrad CPC platform.  

This is a simple game where you dig holes and bury the aliens quickly.

While this image below is not an accurate representation of the game
(don't have the CGL machine no longer),
it gives a good sense of what it might look like in Mode 1 (4 colours)

Of course there is no reason why we couldn't advance the design of the game further. A different viewpoint such as isometric might be a nice starting point.
