Buyer beware complete Space Invaders: Get Even costs 2,000 Wii Points

Before I bought Space Invaders: Get Even a screen with the red Nintendo Wi-Fi logo warned me three stage packs were already prepared. The base pack costs 500 Wii Points ($5) and each additional stage pack cost 500 Wii Points. You can purchase the three level packs directly in the game and fork over 2,000 Wii Points ($20). I haven’t done so yet since I’ve been mostly playing Alien Crush: Returns, but I can see myself doing so in the future. If you’re thinking about buying this though be aware that Space Invaders: Get Even is a short game.

 

Alien Crush: Returns has downloadable content too, but it doesn’t carry the red Nintendo Wi-Fi warning. Hudson’s official page says new action ball motions and stages will be transferred through Wi-Fi. So… these new stages might be free? No one has said anything official on the matter. Alien Crush: Returns doesn’t even have a download option in the main menu. Strange.

 

We will be posting impressions of both of these games in the near future so please look forward to them.

    I have to admit I am happy that Nintendo forces companies to put up a logo saying the game will have dlc that requires cash. I really wish MS and Sony would copy this. Sometimes a $10 game don’t sound bad but then there are 2 expansions at $5 that double the price. This can be a determining factor for me. Especially since with Sony a lot of the time it pays to wait and buy it all in one bundle.

    I heard the stage packs were 100 blocks each, and the core game was 300 blocks.

    Probably has to do with the fact that the game was originally intended for retail, but it needed to be chopped up in order to meet size restrictions.
