8-Bit Invaders! reviews and comments

After 8-Bit Armies and 8-Bit Hordes, So after Soldiers and Tanks from Command & Conquer, as Well as Orcs and Knights from Warcraft, Starcraft with its Aliens and Spaceships now makes its Way into the 8-Bit Series of games in the form of 8-Bit Invaders, and me as a Fan of all RTS (Real Time Str ategy, speak real-time Strategy) Games is really Fun to pull up my Base at a Rapid pace, so that my defenceless, and still somewhat lifestyle-weary collectors are not already overwhelmed by Tanks of the Opponent, while I am just pulling up my first Power Plant. That said, the Game Speed is relatively high, though not quite as high as in the old Days like Command & Conquer Tiberium Sun, Alert Level red etc. The Units move pleasantly fast across the Field, some Units can even directly overcome hills and Walls thanks to Jetpack or other Capabilities, which is even tatinically beneficial. And by that I meant ground Units, Planes already have the right ... Well... Prerequisites to be able to fly. As before, It is possible for Owners of the Predecessors to play the old Cards with the Factions from 8-Bit invaders and vice versa, that is, the new Cards with the Factions from the Predecessors. New campaign missions have also been inserted, of course, which, thanks to the well-built Maps, are also really fun and gradually getting heavier, at least if you don't play on Easy:) So If you are a Fan of RTS Games and experience a bit of Nostalgia in an effective 8-Bit Look, you can also access it here!

It's Time to conquer the Multiverse! 8-Bit Invaders! At first Glance, it looks like another RTS Offshoot that uses typical Command And Conquer game mechanics. But Appearances are deceptive! The Construction System for Units and Buildings is kept so simple that it is easy to master, offers a small Change from other Such games and is also very Fun. Visually, the Game is also madness, as each Model is kept simple but made so elaborate that it is a Pleasure to send its 8-Bit army Over the Cards with Retroflair! It gets Even more impressive when you own every Part of the 8-Bit series: The Factions couldn't look more different when it comes to Orks fighting Aliens or fighting Defections side by Side with galactic Marines-every Game of the 8-Bit series is with Compatible to the other and complemented almost smoothly. For this purpose, the Resource Mining System is different from Game to Game, providing a varied Gaming Experience depending on the 8-Bit faction. Of course, 8-Bit Brings invaders! Like any other Game, its Drawbacks such as an immature online Matchmaking System or a somewhat spongy control over the Units when it comes to selecting multiple Units, or the AI, which is very easy to trick. The finding Of The path also hastles a little, with a fair Way few Real-time Strategy games can master them. The Campaign is required at most by Bonus goals, which are often Limited For time only and do not concern themselves with special Game Mechanics. But If you get used to the little Blemishes, the Battle for the Multiverse is a seemingly endless Fun! And last but not least ... The Soundtrack is the Hammer. If you're into bold arcade music with a light 8-Bit flair, you can get an Earworm. No Wonder, actually, when Frank Klepacki is responsible ... In terms of price, there's no Question that 8-Bit Invaders! A good Buy is. Especially when selling Out, one could also think carefully about whether you do not immediately get all the Parts. I say: It's worth it!
Its a cute game with a lot of retro-value in it, but the zerg-rush tactics being the only tactics ruins most of the missions.
