This PCB has the name "SPACE FORTRESS" on the ROMs module, and came with a "SPACE FORTRESS" marquee. Despite all of those, the game is clearly "Cosmos".
The marquee is marked by Tuni Electro Service Inc. which was the US dealer for Century Electronics.

label format (on ROMs PCB) is:
|Century Elect.| -> manufacturer
|Ltd. (C) 1981 | -> copyright and year
| 1B-9         | -> rom number

update 20190616: better description and correct identification as "Cosmos" (it was "Space Fortress" previously)
