Invasion From Planet X

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.

Reminder that this is free this weekend!

I've had quite a few downloads and a nice 5 star review from someone I don't know. 😉

Maybe save the earth for that someone special today...aw, so romantic.

How many different power-ups are there? I only noticed the rapid fire power-up. BTW good game. More people should download this

Just three types: Rapid fire, then a power one which makes your shots a little bigger and does more damage, then the health increase.

The game intensity goes up as you get more power ups as that causes more UFO pieces to come falling down on you which causes damage.

Glad you enjoy it!!

I missed the free weekend but I bought the game I'm liking it so far! Great job dev!

I love the simple controls and the gameplay gets frantic.
