Invasion from Planet X is a retro inspired arcade shooter. Run your ship along the moon defense shield beams to destroy the alien drone ships that are trying to invade Earth. Non-stop UFO shooting action!

UFO and Player ships are all beautifully animated a combined total of over 1000 frames of animation!

2 control options: Relative Touch or tap sides of screen to move in that direction (preferred)

9 unique beam paths to ride your ship on changes daily!

To save the earth you must:
Survive 210 fleets of enemy drones
Survive 21 boss battles

Watch out for ufo pieces that will cause damage to your ship!
UFO's do not give you power ups that doesn't make sense, but your base will send out helper ships and power ups along the beam to your ship.

My retro-inspired arcade shooter just went live! I consider this my "bucket list" game since I have always wanted to make my own arcade shooter. Hopefully you will enjoy blasting away at all the UFO's!

I had a great time designing all the ships and details. It has a unique (hopefully) game play where the ship rides along a laser beam. There's 9 different beam patterns that change daily.

It's made with Cocos2d & SpriteBuilder. Graphics done in Blender and Gimp.
