    A fun, underrated multi-player title

    I first played this game this year, 2011, and looking at this game as it is now it's actually quite fun. The multi-player option is a blast and something that was missing from the original. No, there isn't anything reall... Read Full Review

    The arcade version brought to your pocket, Space Invaders can get tiresome however.

    This game is one played for either nostalgia or for one who must constantly play their favorite game, everywhere. The Game Boy descendant captures the same screen graphics as the original only in grayscale and this unch... Read Full Review

    Now I can play Space Invaders while texting on the krapper!

    I got a new phone, had to get a game for it, and couldn't decide between - this, Popeye, Galaxian, Arkanoid, Centipede, and Sonic the Hedgehog. I finally chose Space Invaders on a dice roll. Luckily, I wasn't let down. ... Read Full Review

    Space Invaders wants you to destroy aliens in formation. Do it.

    A great port of the classic game on Gameboy color.
