War of the Worlds is an unreleased, monochrome vector graphics arcade game created by Tim Skelly of Cinematronics in 1982. It is based on the H. G. Wells 1898 novel The War of the Worlds. The game was developed as a 3D version of Space Invaders, but was never put into production and fewer than ten units were made.

Gameplay

The game is a fixed shooter using 3D vector graphics. The player controls a tank object at the bottom of the screen and shoots towards the top of the screen at descending Tripods robots in a first person perspective. The player only has movement, cannon fire, and shields to protect them from the Tripods' lasers.
