An (unusual) crossover done right!

AvSI is a really good (and unlikely) crossover between two different video games. It controls well, plays well, and has a lot of stages. The addition of having a (completely unrelated) character as a sidekick gives the game a lot of extra charm to it, but will expect you to use different characters and their abilities to get past the tougher stages. (In my case, I was able to get through a lot of stages using Bub until getting stuck at stage 94) Strangely enough, the game has a lot of story in it.

The most notable thing I found out was that the version I’m reviewing (the US version) is significantly different from other versions, such as the Japanese version. What I found out is that the Japan version unlocks characters at random and can be leveled up. This was all removed or changed in the US version, probably to support a more casual audience.

Any cons? The price tag. The game probably had a high price tag probably because the game uses a lot of content from Taito (Space Invaders, Arkanoid, Bubble Bobble, etc.)

Do I recommend the game? Yes. It’s an awkward crossover done right. It has a lot of stages to go through, making me want to go back and play some more.

Respects you as a gamer and consumer

Arkanoid was fun, but never really got me hooked as a kid, and Space Invaders was about the same, but together, they’re far greater than the sum of their parts. Further, in a world of throw-away freemium garbage with loot box gambling and predatory IAP, Arkanoid vs Space Invaders plays it straight and honest. You get 150 stages and lots of unlockable characters. I’m on stage 61 currently, and I know whenever you beat 15 stages, you unlock hard mode versions of those stages. You could argue that this makes 300 stages worth of content. Aside from one additional download on opening the game for the first time, it requires no online capability after that. It’s an old fashioned, fun, fair app that deserves support so that Taito and SE know what we want.

Jayhawks Rule!


I cannot write enough positive superlatives to describe this game. A lot of love and attention to detail went into creating this game. This game is the very definition of QUALITY! It combines the gameplay of two games, but is so much more than that. Currently, I’m on Stage 53 , and EACH STAGE IS LIKE A DIFFERENT GAME! And there are many more stages to go! There is a MEGATON of replay ability in this game. It is a brick breaker, space invaders, RPG all rolled into one, yet it is SO MUCH MORE! This is the best $5 I’ve spent in a long time. GET THIS GAME NOW, and thank the developers later. You’ll love this game. It’s a TRUE GEM!
