  • Summary: The game starts off looking like the classic Space Invaders, but as you play through the game, it evolves. Unlock new stages, new power ups, and new features. In addition to Normal Mode, Challenge Mode pits you against 99 randomly-created stages. And Music Mode generates custom stages based on music stored on your console. The Invaders are back, and they're watching you. The more you play, the more the game evolves! Expand

  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.

    A true vintage classic brought bang up to date. [Issue#65, p.103]

    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.
  4. The game evolves from simple, bare bones to a full on shmup with bullets flying every which way, and I think you'll find plenty to both challenge you and keep you coming back.
  5. If you don't like Space Invaders or Shoot'Em Ups, this won't change your mind. If, on the other hand, you love the arcade feel of the genre and want those games to offer that persistent feeling of accomplishment more modern games offer, buy this game. You could do much worse for 800 Microsoft Points.
  6. IG's immediate, pressing visual and audio effects can be a shock to the player's system. Immediate reactions will register on the "what the hell" scale, but with a little time, gamers will have a fluid, evolving experience that's got them on the tips of their thumbs.
  7. What should be retro goodness becomes quite boring.
