There was a couple that met on some weird dating site. They liked each other that they went on a date. They eventually get married and have a child. This couple is Galaga and Space Invaders, and their child is Void Invaders. While Void Invaders looks like it's parents, it's got some weird attributes that can't really be found in the familiy tree, such as: a kickass modern electronic soundtrack, and A LOT OF FLASHING LIGHTS AND COLORS. Think of bringing a light machine gun to a rave where evil monsters that explode into light when killed are all gathered for a good time. I've only played a bit of Galaga. I've heard it's an absolute "bullet-hell" of a game. I can confirm that Void Invaders is what I would define bullet-hell with. Now, it can be slow, and then really challenging, but then there are the moments that are: "Holy freaking crap". If you play Endless Mode, you'll see what I mean.

The graphics are nice. I guess. It's a "pseudo-8-bit" game. It looks nice. What do you expect? COD's "2010" graphics (DICE, I love you) ?

Gameplay? You want to ask about a Space Invaders/Galaga -like shooter's gameplay? Well...there are some hard bosses that have unique ways to defeating them, but that's a general gaming thing. What do you expect me to tell you? Well...there are powerups. They can range from a double shotgun, to a rotating shotgun, to a tornado shotgun...I haven't even seen all of them yet. They can stack, and are only useable for a limited time. The Quadruple, Rotating, Tornado Shotgun made me cry. I also already said that it can be hard.

The soundtrack, as stated above, is modern, electronic, and dance-ish. I personally think it's kickass. It's small though.

All in all, it's a great game. 10/10

It'll sure beat Infinate Warfare's space sequence for sure.

"Invaders and flashing screen"
Pretty neat arcade revival game. Somekind of mixture of Space Invaders, Galaga, Centipede and Frogger. You shoot through tons of aliens with power upgrades + levelups + skins. There are also Steam leaderboards and an Endless mode. The epileptic warning in the beginning is totally justified. Aliens explode in white flashes. Beat all challenging 30 levels in medium and hard. Just to die 50 times seems really really hard.

Wow!
I must say that i have never expected to enjoy a Space Invaders clone as much as this.
So, starting the game, you are confronted with a settings menu that contains everything you need and some excellent music (soundtrack is included when you buy the main game) prematurely filling you with adrenaline that you will need later on. Then there's the selection between gamemodes being:
  • Level Mode: Play through 30 different levels with a slight level of passive experience-based progression between levels. (data is autosaved)
  • Endless Mode: Mow your way through a procedurally generated neverending (hence the name) stream of enemies in the hopes of beating your high score.
  • Wave Mode: The same as Endless Mode, but in a rotation of waves (duh) that are all manually designed.
Jumping into it i admit that i saw nothing but a weak space ship in a take on the classic coin-eating Space Invaders, but it didn't differ from the original enough to keep me interested. That was until it started borrowing some of Galaga's complexity, and classic shmup elements and pacing from the bullet hells such as CRIMZON CLOVER. And that is basically what this is, classic arcade Space Invaders/Galaga with shmup elements thrown into it.
But somehow, Void Invaders succeeds in not feeling like another one of these unoriginal ripoffs as instead of blending different existing games together, it does that and adds more to it. They added a lot of new enemies and bosses with original patterns and also new shmup-like temporary upgrade pick ups with not only "more bullets in a wider range", but besides that also a handful of unique upgrades that cause different playstyles and pacing, much like Bit Blaster XL.
What also differs Void Invaders from other Space Invaders clones is that the general amount of ♥♥♥♥ happening on the screen is not inserted merely for the sake of eyerape. It actually adds to the aesthetic of the game. The way the particles are thrown on the screen is what many refer to as "artistically cohesive" in the sense that all of the explosion effects, the background and the unique screen tilt while moving actually fit together quite nicely. I'd say Void Invaders should switch places in reputation with Bit Blaster XL.

Don't see stuff that should be here or vice versa? I'm open to constructive criticism.

This is the kind of game that I call a "bargain bin purchase", these are games that wind up selling for incredibly cheap costs and can often turn out to be real gems, Void Invaders was another great find in the Steam sale for a measly £0.49.

Void Invaders is a homage to retro space shooters such as Galaga, Galaxian, Space Invaders etc. so you should know exactly what to expect based on the trailer and screenshots provided, however, I just wanted to write up this quick review to inform you that it is definitely worth the money and that it turned out to be a huge amount of fun.

This game features retro arcade-like gameplay with a brilliant unique soundtrack to go along with it, complete up to 30 singleplayer levels (including bossfights) or play in endless or wave modes to really test yourself and compete in the Steam leaderboards.

Something important to note however is that after a while the game can really strain your eyes. If you have played Beat Hazard before, then it's easiest to compare the explosions and bright flashes in Void Invaders to those used there too, except Beat Hazard has the option to tone it down, Void Invaders does not. Heed the warnings about photosensitive epilepsy, they are there for a good reason.

Too addicting.
Like seriously way too addicting. And fun. Really really fun.
Graphics are bright and colourful, and the music is great.
It's a really well made game.
and I want all the achievements... I need them.
I just suck at the game.
10/10 would play more.
