I read the one previous review and decided to give this game a try. I'm sure glad I did! So many people love the Chicken Invaders games and this game has similar properties. You are in a space ship that you control along the bottom of the screen. Various 3-D bugs attack you as you shoot at them. The thing that makes this game SO much fun is all the power-ups. There are lots of different things, from bullets you can control to missiles and my personal favorite, the capture power-up which allows you to catch one of those attacking bugs and make it fight beside you. And there are even power ups for your bug. You can get an attachment that looks like a throwing star on a string that you can control by moving your ship back and forth, This will kill bugs on contact. This game is more than just a shooting game because it has aspects of a physics based game as well. There are fans that come down and influence how you shoot. You have to factor in the direction of the air. Every 8 levels you earn a trophy. When you play again, you can continue from any of your previous trophies. This is a nice way to allow players to skip ahead in the game. I hope my review will encourage another gamer to give this one a try. I'm sure glad it's in my collection.

This game is similar to the old arcade game Galaga. The graphics and sound effects are great. Plus it has many very useful powerups. One of the great things about this game is that your powerups continue from level to level, and you can have more than one powerup active at a time. Your powerups will only disappear when you lose a life or when you reach the next checkpoint. The game started slowly but soon became quite challenging. The basis of the game is that your ship moves left and right along the bottom of the playing field. Enemies fly in formation near the top of the screen and then come down toward you while shooting at you. Every 7 or so levels you get to a checkpoint, so that if you lose your 3 lives, you can start over from that point. All in all I really enjoyed this hidden gem of a game and highly recommend it.
