Space Invasion is retro gaming goodness. It’s an adaptation of one of the most classic and one of the original video games, Space Invaders.

Space Invasion does take the idea further and add some extras to the game play. For one there are power-ups of various kinds. And in general the aliens are just meaner. Not only do they shoot, but they drop bombs, and they move fast!

Here’s a video provided by the developer that shows the gameplay.

Overall I find this game very difficult. I think it’s a combination of the controls — hard to do on an iPhone and that the aliens are just too mean. But, it is a great trip back in time and provides some fairly solid retro gaming goodness though the price is, perhaps, a little high compared to similar games in the App Store.
