Defend Earth from certain doom. Play Alien Attack!

Alien Attack offers you the Space Invaders classic arcade game experience without the high price.

Tap the screen to shoot your laser blaster and shoot wave after wave of advancing alien invaders. Use tilt controls to move your ship.

Alien Attack supports a variety of user controlled options. Simply configure the game from the "Settings" applet from the main screen on your iPhone / iPod Touch. Scroll down to see the "Alien Attack" settings, and you'll be able to configure options such as rapid fire, difficulty, number of lives, and various control options. Did you know that you can play Alien Attack single handedly? Just enable the unique "Tap Case To Fire" setting in combination with the tilt controls. Tap the back of the case with your finger to fire, and tilt the device as normal to move. Try it!

Alien Attack brings you back to an era when the best games in the world were Space Invaders, Galaga and Galaxian. If you still enjoy blasting wave after wave of attackers, then you will throughly enjoy Alien Attack. When you have Alien Attack loaded on your iPhone or iPod Touch, it is like having a classic arcade machine in your pocket.

If you are looking for the authentic classic game experience, look no further. You've found it.

I love it!

For just $0.99, you can’t go wrong. This is one fun app. The game lets you configure it for use with the accelerometer tilt controls or buttons so you can take your pick. Controls are perfectly responsive. Being able to tap on the back to fire is just too cool! You need to configure these options from the Settings Applet as the game instructions tell you. The animation is smooth and the graphics and sounds are just great for this genre. I enjoy how the shields disintegrate when they are hit and the invaders cascade left and right just like they are supposed to. It was also a pleasant surprise to see something new, with the aliens whizzing by in round two. And a contest where you can win a t-shirt? This is awesome!!! It’s a great version of an old school classic. I’m blown away that I can get a game this good for the price. Kudos!

Space Invaders - Price = Alien Attack

Space Invaders is sitting at the Itunes store for a whoppin' $5. It's glitchy, with akward controls. Many reviewers are saying it's not worth $5. One said it's worth about $1. Well, that person probably should've looked harder. Alien Attack is basically Space Invaders without the over-expensive price tag. It's near the same game with a nice variety of different ways to play. Don't like the motion controls? Switch to the arrows! Sick of tapping the screen? Just hit the back and it's all good. It's pretty much the exact same game with slightly modified graphics and nicer price tag. It's not the most fun in the world, but if you're a retro gamer and don't feel like paying $5, this is your game!

Brings back the “Golden Days of Arcade”!

This app is one of my favorites and well worth the buck! Joel has done a wonderful job of incorporating the iPhone features to make this game fun for everyone. Now my kids can play the games I did when I was their age (only better!). Too bad I was not able to win a T-Shirt! Thanks for the great App Joel, I look forward to your future developments. If you don’t have it, GET IT!
