Pure retro heaven. If you like classic Arcade games then this is one for you.
Based on Invazion this is a more traditional arcade game with retro graphics to match.
You must save the earth from the rampaging aliens who will stop at nothing to destroy you or the earth. This game is a celebration of a classic game, updated to add some challenges.
You start out with 1 life and the aliens start quite tame. Each level they will increase in number and speed, they will also shoot more often over time.
This version of the game allows you to earn achievements, these are earned by shooting the GOLD UFO which will scroll across the screen at random. You can gain a single achievement on each level. The achievements will allow you to Pause the Game, Save the Game, Get multiple lives and also Earn extra lives as you attain higher levels.
There are 4 control schemes available which are Touch Control, Joystick Control, Button Control and Tilit Control. These are covered in the help screens and on the support site.
To increase your score you can hit the random UFO which will appear at the top of the screen. This has a points value between 5 and 30 based which is calculated using a special formula. Hitting the GOLD UFO will earn you 50 points and 1 achievement, each level has at least 1 of the UFO's available, however once hit you will not see it again in this level.
Invazion Project-R features an unlockable game saving ability. Anytime you exit the application (for example using the home key) the game state will be saved. In addition the pause screen in the full version features a save game option which can be used at any time.
On re-entering the application you will have the option to resume a saved game provided you have attained the save feature.

If you know the arcade game "Space Invaders" you will love this game. Easy to play at first and gets harder as you advance through the different levels. I reccomend getting this game while it is free. I grew up on space invaders and this game is very similar. Just remember if you have it in touch mode to have one thumb below red line to slide your ship back and forth and tap screen above line to shoot with your other thumb. You cannot rapid fire, once you shoot you cannot fire again until your rocket hits a ship or until it stops. That is why it seems the controller doesn't respond, there is nothing wrong with the response. I have made it to level 21 with 2,800 points on my second time trying game. Space invaders came out in the early 80's, so of you haven't played it you will have to get used to this and it won't be hard.
I like this version of Invazion best. The only oddity is the animation of enemy ship's distruction really doesn't fit the rest of the game. The achievment system keeps me playing- maybe you could add some more like, "clear each line in order" or something. Also, it'd be nice if the save option was on the main pause screen.
I personally like the normal version better, but it is nice that the developer made another version with different graphics.
