  • Summary: Space Invaders Revolution is a new take on the series, which marks a true progression over any version before it: New types of invaders, new rules and new ways to destroy them. Contains a faithful reproduction of the original arcade machine in Classic Mode. New Era mode: the simple rules of Space Invaders are expanded and twisted into a revolutionary step for the classic franchise. New Era mode takes the form of a world tour, with the player confronting the Space Invaders at 20 recognisable geographical locations. In total there are 60 levels to defend and 13 different types of invader to battle. Power-ups include protective shields, additional support craft, rapid-fire shots and column-clearing laser beams – essential aides as the action becomes progressively more intense. Power-ups can be used in combination: using support craft with laser results in three laser beams, decimating multiple waves of invaders with every press of the fire button.

  1. For me, I think the new age mode brings some nice things to the table, but might not be enough to warrant a purchase.
  2. This Nintendo DS game card is aimed squarely at fans of the original game and doesn't go overboard to modernize the classic formula.
  3. Space Invaders Revolution is never going to be the title to grab the attention of the masses, but for those that have fond memories or wish for something highly addictive to fill 15 minute slots you’ll not find anything quite so fitting as this.

    It's not very creative. And past Space Invaders games on current consoles and handhelds have done a much better job with contemporizing a true arcade classic.
  5. With no multiplayer support, very little replay value, underachieving graphics and weak sound effects, Space Invaders fails to revive the franchise's former glory. [Oct 2005, p.97]
  6. If you're looking for a revolution, you've come to the wrong place - unless you just want to go around in circles.
  7. 15
    Space Invaders Revolution should serve as an industry standard, an shining example of how to take a classic game and squeeze the last few bucks out of it without doing much to differentiate it from the original game.
