  1. It's a great reimagining of the original series, and certainly worth checking out for both fans of the modern "bullet hell" CAVE titles, and for old-school Space Invaders fans as well.

    If you haven't played Infinity Gene already, or even if you have, it's a worthwhile purchase at $10. If you can get past the short stages, repeating bosses and, for some of you, buying the game again, the superb design, extra modes and inventive use of retro style seen here is well worth the price of admission.
  3. Not just the best re-creation of Space Invaders I have played, it is also one of my favourite downloadable titles of 2010. This is an absolute no-brainer recommendation to anyone who played the game or its clones in the '80s, and for anyone who hasn't played it, you will enjoy a very quirky and unusual top-down shooter.
  4. This is an excellent update of the classic title.

    Overall, if you love old-school shooters and feel like you are up for a challenge then I would tell you to download Space Invaders I.G. to your HD gaming system or iPhone of your choice, this is a really awesome game.

    Really good. Captures the feel of 80's arcade games with spot on sound effects with old school graphics but moves at a frantic pace. It's not overwhelming like I thought the Galaga redo was, it's somewhere inbetween that and the Pac Man Championship Edition. Very addictive... and there's a reason to play it more than once, with a good record of scores, chain combos, and leaderboards. It also supports in-game music and there's a music mode where the background goes with your beat. For a $10 download on the PSN, it's a great addition to the PS3 whenever you want to play for 15 minutes or over an hour. Full Review »
