DisplaySpace Commanders supports the use of a color or black and white monitor. If you choose the black and white option and are running the game on a true CGA card, the game will use the tweaked red-cyan-white-black palette. This palette appears as black and white on a color or black and white composite monitor, but as color on a color RGB monitor. The rest only uses the white color though, and will appear as black and white on any type of monitor.
Historical noteThis game's publisher - Columbia Data Products - was a computer manufacturer that introduced the first ever "IBM PC compatible" computer (in June 1982). To attract buyers, CDP began offering a package of popular software titles bundled for free with its PCs. Space Commanders was released in 1983, to join this "Columbia Super Pack" of free bundled software.
Thus, the first clone of the trend-setting PC was being sold with the first PC clone of the trend-setting arcade game - quite fitting!
