The game is still online at http://www.interference.com/u2popinvaders/index.shtml

... however... it may not work in Mozilla based browsers (I dont think they even existed back then), and will freeze with IE7 beta, and it may not even work in the most recent release of IE6.... infact... it will probably only work if you've got an old browser.

Few things...

1) The site hates those pop-up blockers in Firefox and IE6 SP2. You'd have to set up Interference.com as an allowed site first.

2) Even then, the instructions don't even come up in Firefox.

3) And for IE6, you can get the instruction and the game to start up, but once you click your mouse to fire, you get a JavaScript error:

Line: 325
Char: 1
Error: Access is denied
Code: 0
URL: http://www.interference.com/u2popinv...adersmain.html

Oh well...too bad this wasn't made in Flash originally, because it would probably still work.

anyone remember a game that island had on their website publicizing the 80-90 greatest hits?

it was a maze and you had to get the members of u2 through the maze to the studio without running into fans... they had some really funny sound clip of some fan saying "it's... the edge...." which i used to laugh and and still say because i'm obviously a loser and remember shit like this.
