Excerpt: Space Invaders Extreme, as the name would suggest, is a remake for the current generation of handhelds of one of the most iconic games ever made. The basic gameplay remains the same. You control a small spaceship at the bottom of the screen and shoot at the pixelated alien spaceships which are scrolling down the screen towards you, all the while avoiding their weapons' fire.
Excerpt: Space Invaders Extreme takes on a 30-year-old title, based on the simplest of concepts (don't let the aliens land -- blast them out of the sky!), and manages to be just about the ideal update to an old, old school game that I've ever played. This is truly a case of "everything old is new again." Your cannon and the alien critters look the same, save the expeted cosmetic improvements.
Summary: Space Invaders Extreme combines the essence of the original game with an alliance of futuristic graphic design and audio. The gameplay experience has been developed to maximize the console's abilities, offering players a whole new range of features including a vast array of new power-ups, DS Wireless Communications and Wi-Fi.
Summary: 30 years later and Space Invaders is still kicking ass and taking names.
Pros: Local and WiFi multiplayer, complete with Practice Mode, Meaningful and unique upgrade to the core Space Invaders experience, Music created by your in-game actions, Rumble Pak compatibility, Unique and interesting bosses
Excerpt: We should have seen this coming. It was inevitable, really. Despite all the bloody battles and hard-earned victories, the human race was never really safe. Not from these things, anyway. No matter how many of them you kill, there will always be more of them. Wave after pixilated wave of spaceships are now wandering the skies, descending ever so slowly like a waterfall in slow motion.
Conclusion: Space Invaders Extreme ist weit mehr als ein Aufguss eines Klassikers. Den Entwicklern ist es gelungen, das alte Konzept kaum zu verändern, sondern es sinnvoll zu ergänzen. Die zeitgemäße Grafik und der motivierende Soundtrack passen perfekt zum Spielerlebnis. Der vorbildliche Mehrspielermodus vervollständigt das gute Bild. Manchmal sind Evolutionen besser als Revolutionen!
Pros: Klassiker mit Innovation, Starke Technik, Toller Multiplayer-Modus
