Important point

So, videogame is written in C++, that’s why you need Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019, that can be downloaded from Microsoft website: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

From some point of interest there is "so-called" box.

Here is a videogame box. Cartridge and a box.
All these done as an example. Like a fantasy.
This is very retro videogame from somekind of USSR, from 70s,80s.
Dawn of computer age. And it has laconic decoration. It is for mass production.

It is as intriguing, as a simple.

As usual, it is well done. Done as good as steel. USSR - made from steel.

So imagine, heavy, rigid cardboard,and thick light plastic on cartridge. You can see a sputnik. Sputnik - is a symbol of age. Space race, science news.

Videogame is someway copy of Space Invaders. But it is artistic version of it. It is similiar in someway, but with also a different many points in gameplay.
