1979 Invasion Earth reviews and comments

Redesigned, arcade shooter with slot machines of the past. Pleased The fact that here pretty hard work on graphics, music and improvements in gameplay. We Have already got the pixel games in the Oldschool style. There are bright, beautiful graphics with a bunch of effects and neon reflections. Yes, and the music is very high quality. Classic gameplay varied bonuses (big, flying balls that give weapons, glasses or multiplier), protective blocks and three modes of play. The people Who were Diving downstairs were amused. Especially when they are shot by aliens. In one of the bonus balls you can also notice the little man. If you save him from alien captivity, you get extra points. The game is Made to the conscience. Worthy replenishment of the collection!

"1979 Invasion Earth" is a successful clone of the cult game "Space Invaders". Game of the genre "Shoot ' em Up". The classic "Space Invaders", but updated in modern graphics. The game Has three modes: "Arcade"-Give three lives. You need to clear each stage before moving on to the next one. "Skillshot"-Aliens do not shoot. You Need to destroy as many enemies. "Survival"-Play with One life and timer. The Intensity of the waves increases every 30 seconds. We Need to survive as long as possible. No Knowledge of English is required. The Game supports the boards of Honor, achievements and collectible cards. Liked Everything: graphics, gameplay and music. A Worthy clone of classic genre!

The Game was recommended by friends. I liked the Graphics very much. So colorful, all in neon lights. Reminds a big city at night. Everything glows and glitters. The Statue of Liberty can even be seen on one of the backgrounds. The game is not bad music. It's a pleasure to Play. It is a Pity that the tracks are not enough. The Gameplay consists in the shoot-out of alien ships. We have to protect the people Downstairs. Such a simple gameplay, but very addictive. The Most fun is when you get a laser that shoots in different directions. This is the coolest weapon in the game. The Game is suitable for people of any age and tastes. You will not play it Long, but from time to time to shoot on the alien plates would be interesting. The more you want to return to the game and improve your results to get into the leaderboard.

Watched the movie "Independence Day"? Now you have to visit the skin of the protagonist of this film and Destroy all the alien ships. https://youtu.be/Gzdb6RFIDq4 This Game remake of the very "Galaxi"-games from the 90s. Only here added a lot of modes, bonuses:-The game has three modes: Arcade, Skillshot, Survival-Bonuses: Extra lives, better shooting, points-for the game they are not important, but to pontovatat the board of Honor the most. Improved graphics and completely changed all the acting "faces", also not a bad soundtrack. The Achievements of the Trims will certainly add to the game of excitement. Minus:-You can not turn off the music, the game eventually bored, and it is not as not to turn off to replace the other. In General, the game is not bad, and the price is not too high. The same you can see reviews for other games: http://store.steampowered.com/curator/25737869/
