A US release can’t be too far behind since this probably doesn't have a lot of text to localize. The concept of Space Invaders Get Even has players take control of […]

Going to the extreme in Space Invaders Extreme

By Levi . June 23, 2008 . 3:15pm

Ever since it's inception in 1978, Space Invaders has been remade and ported more times than I can count. Sometimes these remakes are good, sometimes they're not so good.
