Chillingo’s Inkvaders is OUT! Time to load up on paper bullets

Inkvaders, the game which occupied a heap of my time in the last week, and which eventually had me  wishing for an eraser rubber, is out at the App Store. My prophesy that this week would be the magic timeframe for release was fantastically right (and tipped off by Chillingo). If you need incentive to buy, check out my preview of Inkvaders; I generally think the game (not my preview) is worth all of its 99 cents asking price; that is unless you abhor violence – in which case, the Sims 3 might do you better.

The game has debuted! 20 August 2009, the aliens attack your little notebook.

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.
