  1. There are only 20 levels, it can get repetitive repeating levels over and over again and because there are no save points it can be extremely challenging – still, great fun.

    A quirky effort. [Issue#186, p.87]
  3. Odd. [Christmas 2009, p.95]
  4. If it were a 59p iPhone app it might be easier to overlook such clumsy and uninspired construction - or at least not feel too aggrieved when you delete it - but by staking a place at the top end of the Minis price list, Alien Havoc draws too much attention to its shortcomings.
  5. The core concept is solid, and seems like a perfect fit for a PSP Minis game, but it plays so slowly and frustrates to such a degree that, even at £3.99, it's not worth a punt. Avoid like you would an alien invasion.

    I'd love to see Alien Havoc 2: Balls to the Walls. You know, a sequel that lets loose and goes for fast-paced twitch gameplay over the sluggish pace of this release. Bite-sized games like this live or die on their addictiveness. And Alien Havoc is not addictive.
  7. Feels like the sort of shovelware your mate sneaked onto the school PCs in 1996. [Dec 2009, p.18]
  8. The tired wackiness in Alien Havoc could be forgivable if there was more going on here, but as it is, you’ll be contemplating all the other things $5 could’ve bought instead.

    Horrible game. Like some PC shareware from 1992. No, that would be incorrect because a shareware game from 1992 would let you save the game. Really not worth play thing same levels over and over to get farther. Full Review »
