Summary: Space Invaders Extreme did the impossible - turned this long-time skeptic into a true believer. This isn't just a fun retro resurrection, it's a phenomenal action game that should be in everybody's collection. At $20 there's no reason to be without Space Invaders Extreme. Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.
Pros: Waves come and go at a brisk pace. This is classic gaming for players with YouTube attention spans.
Cons: In the 1978 original, players were shielded by several bunkers that deteriorated when fired upon. A popular player tactic was to blast through the walls from behind, creating an arrow slit to fire from. The bunkers and the emergent play they inspired are M.I.A.
Excerpt: If it's been a long time since you've jumped behind the seat of a Space Invaders tank and blasted away at a sea of marauding aliens, then it's high time you got back in that saddle. Activision has brought back this arcade classic and it's better than ever.
Excerpt: O clássico foi renovado mas para grande alegria nossa está tão ou mais viciante que o original! Ora aqui está uma forma muito agradável de regressar ao passado, principalmente para quem tenha tido oportunidade de jogar Space Invaders numa das plataformas dos finais dos anos 70 e início dos anos 80.
