What's New in Version 1.0.7
Brings back childhood memories
I've always loved this game. It and "Asteroids" were always my favorites, but you don't hardly ever see them anymore. This game is fun to play but the control knob (not left and right buttons as in some pictures) does not necessarily move when you move it or as far as you move it. I think this would be better with a left button and a right button, but so far no updates have come out for the game since I've had it (couple of months) and I read another testimonial from another user that said they never update their game which is very sad. A game this popular and pricey should have updates IMO. Overall I gave it 3 stars for the above stated reasons.
If you liked Space Invaders as a kid, you will love this game! It is perfectly recreated by the company that originally made it. You can choose different screen options that make it look like the original monochrome version or the later partial and full-color versions. I feel like I'm a kid again! Even my 9-year-old son is really enjoying it, too. There's just something about the classics. Thanks, Taito! Go retro!
Hard to control, but fun.
The problem with most games on touch screen smartphones is that the controls are not as precise and easy as you would with a larger screen and controls. So don't expect this game to be easy to control, but it is fun to have for any of you retro game fans. You can at least choose, regular joystick, drag or accelermeter controls to see which is best for you.
