This game is a very early Arcade port for the Vic-20. The bulk of cartridge games for the Vic-20 begin to appear in 1983 - this one is dated 1981. Threshold is a Space Invaders style game. In this game, the player has five space ships and must use them to zap a variety of aliens who are, presumably, intent on some sort of malice. The game manages to avoid the repetitive game play found in games like Atarisoft's Galaxian through a variety of different aliens who fly in distinctly different patterns.
