Excerpt: In July 2011, a strange news item appeared from the movie industry. "Space Invaders is Headed to Big Screen." Just realize what you're actually reading. They. Are. Going. To. Make. A. Space. Invaders. Movie. I'm sure someone snapped and went crazy. What the heck will this movie be about? I have no clue. The news got even worse when I read that American movie producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura will be attached to the Space Invaders movie.
Summary: Space Invaders is back with a new twist. The game starts off looking like the classic Space Invaders, but as you play through the game, it evolves. Unlock new stages, power-ups and features. The full game features a total of 143 stages.
Excerpt: Long since its creation in 1978, Space Invaders has undergone numerous makeovers for a variety of new handheld platforms and full-length games for the consoles. It�s also spawned an astounding number of spin-offs over the years. Originally developed for the iOS platforms on the iPhone / iPod Touch, Space Invaders Infinity Gene has made its way onto the Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network.
Summary: Fans of last year's excellent PSP game will feel right at home with this port. Unfortunately that's because not much has changed since Space Invaders Extreme first hit the handhelds. Still, if you somehow missed this game last year, then there's no excuse for you to not pick up this incredible $10 shooter! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
Conclusion: When little brother Jeff was very young, we loved to play Bubble Bobble together. It was a fun, simple game that both of us could enjoy and understand. Jeff even made up his own game while playing. After completing a round, the game gives you a few seconds to scramble around and get all the bonus fruit.
Pros: When you pull cattle up to your ship with your UFO's tractor beam, an exasperated farmer cries to the heavens, "What do they want with my cows?" You don't want to know, mister.
Cons: The game doesn't take the time to explain the rules. You're immediately thrown into a fight and expected to muddle your way through. This is not how you encourage people to spend another 15 bucks.
