|Genre(s)||Shoot 'em up|
Colony 7 is an arcade shoot 'em up published by Taito in 1981. It contains elements of both Taito's own Space Invaders and Atari's Missile Command. Colony 7 was the inspiration for the successful Atari 2600 game Atlantis from Imagic.
The main innovation of Colony 7 was its extended weaponry arsenal. This gave the player the choice to change between several different weapons, with each one needing to be purchased separately as microtransactions through the arcade coin slot.
