Thirty years after their first invasion, the Space Invaders have returned. This time they're better armed and have new tricks – but then, so do you. Take on the familiar looking aliens as they attack not only in their traditional formations, but in streaking dive-bombing attacks, and other combinations. Destroy specific combinations of aliens to receive power-ups.
Four red aliens destroyed rewards you with a cluster bomb attack while a quartet of destroyed blue aliens gives you a devastating laser beam that can wipe out entire rows of aliens. Shoot down the flying saucer for additional effects. Make your way through the levels to confront the boss aliens along with special bonus levels. Checkpoints along the way allow you to save your progress so that you can pick up where you left off.
The game is accompanied by hopping techno music and psychedelic backgrounds (which can be turned off) to add to the energetic frenzy. Despite the glitz and flash, Space Invaders Extreme remains true to the original – get them before they get you.
Pros: A fantastic remake of an old classic, and at only 20 bucks.
Cons: None to speak of.
Other Thoughts: Go pick this one up and support it!
