Super Space Invaders is an update to Space Invaders, released for a variety of consoles and computers including the Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear. It is based off of the arcade sequel Super Space Invaders '91, known as Majestic Twelve: The Space Invaders Part IV in Japan and in the USA.

Gameplay is very similar to the original game, though there have been updates in the graphics and sound departments and new enemies with different move patterns have been added.
