Atomaders is a simple, Space Invaders-style shooter with a more modern look and feel, as well as a bevy of power-ups. As in the classic arcade game, rows of alien ships slowly advance on you from the top of the screen, while you slide a space ship back and forth at the bottom of the screen to fire up. You can fire only one shot at a time, so if you miss completely, you'll need to wait for your missile to clear the screen before you can fire another. Most enemies will drop colored widgets after you destroy them. Collect four of the same color in a row, and you'll be able to fire a single special shot, such as a missile that plows through an entire column of ships. Despite these twists, you'll still rely on the tried-and-true Space Invaders tactic of leaving one ship at the far end of each row to slow the enemy advance as you clear out the center. There are some boss fights in the game, but the graphics and sound aren't particularly great. Atomaders offers a decent shooting experience, but a lack of depth means you won't stay interested for long.
