According to George Gomez, Attack from Mars was *not* originally inspired by the movie 'Mars Attacks' as is commonly suggested. According to Gomez, Brian Eddy had the concept long before the movie and it is mere coincidence that they emerged on the market within a year of each other.
Doug Watson, who wrote the script for what they should say, is also the voice of the Martians.
Cow Video Mode (DOHO): Shoot the ball up the Big-O-Beam ramp on the left side and press the Launch Ball button when/if a cow can be heard mooing. The second time Video Mode occurs after this, the attack will be made by cows instead of flying Saucers! Destroy all the cows and the giant "Mother Cow" will appear!
"The Attack is on.get it or get left behind."
"An Unstoppable Earnings Invasion!"
"Mayhem, Madness and Destruction Were Never so Much Fun!"
