Planet of the Jellies!

July 10, 2008

Ok, here’s a strange looking portable game that is a cross between Space Invaders and Match 3…hmmm how can these two completely different games work together, you might ask? Enter Planet of the Jellies. Instead of shooting at our space invaders, we click on them so that they drop down, stacking identical aliens on top […]

(Oh No) More Invaders from Space!

February 2, 2008

The name of the game is: (Oh No) More Invaders from Space, and it is by far the most fast-paced Space Invaders clone I’ve ever played. The graphics are pretty neat, too! The game has some additional elements such as power-ups, various weapons and apparently, from the site’s description, you have to protect cows from […]

The games I tested are all pretty small at around 3 MB or less. […]

Portable Games: Another Space Invaders

I tried out a new Space Invaders today that I really enjoyed. It’s an OpenSource version and you can download it from here: http://spaceinvadersgl.sourceforge.net/. Select the third download file: “Space Invaders-0.6.1.zip(650 KB) – Program executable in zip archive.” You only need to copy the executable to your flash drive. This game is available for Windows […]

Portable Games Review: Space Invaders

August 2, 2006

Here is a small (less than 60 K) and sweet remake of the classic Space Invaders. It has no sound and I find it much more challenging to play than the version incorporated in the Arcade Pack (I found that one too easy and boring). The movement keys take some getting used to. Well, ok. […]
