Space Invaders Forever

Space Invaders Forever is a curious collection of three takes on Space Invaders, each representing a different design ethos. Space Invaders Extreme, a port of the handheld classic, imagines the original with DDR-style graphics. It’s great with branching level paths based on your score with the most interesting twists on the formula. Space Invaders Gigamax 4 SE is widened to accommodate four players, however, nobody owns 4 DualShocks so I’ll move on. Arkanoid Vs. Space Invaders is the most interesting one, mechanically speaking, combining the two games together. However, smartphone visuals, currency mechanics, and shrieking anime characters just feel cheap.
