Game Review

You may be asking: Didn’t we already get a Space Invaders remake a little while ago? Yep, in fact, it was just under a year ago that Space Invaders Extreme came out for Nintendo DS and Xbox Live Arcade, with its mixture of old-school sprites from the 1980’s game mixed with some fresh gaming ideas, including multi-colored enemies and innovative power-ups.

Kombo\'s Weekly News Round-Up
