Invasion From Planet X

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. Survive attacks from 21 unique UFO’s to save the Earth!


Non-stop UFO shooting action!

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

21 armadas of unique UFO’s! Each armada consists of 10 waves of UFO’s followed by the Boss.

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

2 Control options: Relative touch, or use sides of screen to direct ship

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 – and to other UFOs!

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.

Thanks! I had a lot of fun making the beam and getting the player ship and helper ships to follow along nicely.

There's a subtle gravity influence on the beam as well so you will coast downwards.
