Weekend fun: Invasion


Twenty years ago terror stalked the skies whilst below, humanity cowered in fear. No, we are not talking about ‘pouffy’ hairstyles, shoulder pads and men wearing mascara. We are talking about Space Invaders. We thought we had won. We thought they were beaten. Guess what? We were wrong. In the summer of 2007, scientists detected new and strange signals coming from behind the moon. Some laughed, some cried, most ignored … until it started. These aren’t your parent’s invaders though. Blocky pixels, the ‘march of death’ and stupid ‘Mep Maw’ noises are out of the window. These guys have smartened up. More attack patterns than a Kung Fu master, better looking than a bus full of supermodels and with more tricks up their sleeves than a Vegas magic show, these guys are back and they intend to do the business – in style.

And that’s just the description for this new take on an old classic! The game features multiple alien crafts, each with their own particular weapons, moves and intelligent behaviour, super weapons, unlimited levels, rankings by score and progress and the mother of all motherships.

Invasion is available for US$14.95 from our affiliate Clickgamer.
