8-bit vs 16-bit review (iPod/iPhone)July 30, 2011
♫ “Invaders must die
Invaders must die”
10 word description: Tap game; retro style; switch mode to kill different invaders.
10 word review: Frantic one-more-go action – mode swapping gets very intense.
You will like this if you enjoy: Tap-to-kill type games. Witnessing the reinvention of space invaders for the attention-deficit generation.
The good news: It’s a very, very simple concept that is somehow the most frantic, perspiration generating game I’ve seen for … a day at least.
The bad news: Its simplicity is possibly its downfall. The graphical differences between 8-bit and 16-bit only really reach as far as the menu screen. The game itself, although a genuinely frantic experience, doesn’t have enough to keep you hooked beyond a handful of quick tries.
Arcadelife verdict: I’d like to see this game updated and expanded. The basic concept is good, it just needs some different game modes (not just graphical variations either!) and a bit more actual game to keep players coming back for more.
Arcadelife rating: 8/16
Version reviewed by Arcadelife is 1.0.0
