Chillingo’s Inkvaders set to pillage the App Store


Chillingo, the sonorous company name that ringo’s in me earo’s like so many angels, signals another chorus – this time, to the tune of ‘The British are Coming’. The invaders came from an unlikely spot: the notebook sketches of one bored student who now has to do something to stop the creatures s/he created. Evidently, that something is to draw a hero who will fight off the baddies. Invaders is described as a ‘wacky shooter’ and from the description, it shouldn’t disappoint.

But, it might have trouble with its name. Invaders is about as common a name in gaming as Park or Kim are surnames in Korea. Darren McKie’s game, Invaders is a game where you play the invading force trying to dominate Earth from above. I rather think the two should team up.

Press Literature:


Whilst doodling away, half dazed from the boring lecture I was in, I thought I saw the image move. The Martians I was drawing were invading my notepad! I had to do something to stop them. Pen in hand, I drew a hero to fight them off. Bold, brave, no fear of death, the story unfolded before my eyes…

The Earth was in peril… again!

The task of saving the day falls at the feet of Generic Marine (G to his friends).
As the Martian horde invades, G must battle his way from his lunar base on the Moon back to Earth, to wipe the Martian menace from our streets and restore the human race.
It won’t be an easy task but G has an arsenal of 15 deadly weapons to hand. Join him and shoot, splat, and blast your way through 30 levels over 3 unique locations, to victory!

Manage ammo, three weapon types, health and boost (jet pack). Collect Martian rocks and meteors to earn cash and upgrade weapons – there is always a new way to purge the Martian Invaders just around the corner! Single shot weapons, multi-shot weapons, beam weapons, and rocket launchers to send them to oblivion.

Easy to learn, addictive to play, saving the Earth from the Martians has never been so much fun!
