Inkvaders combines cartoon graphics, hilarious weapons, and micro-managed weapon upgrades, and brings to life a phenomenal, gory side-scrolling shooter that will keep you entertained for hours. Set in a cartoonish universe, the game immerses the player in the adventures of Generic Marine (G to his friends), who takes on the Martian Hordes, which are once again determined to see the Earth’s destruction. As the aliens invade, G must battle his way from his base on the Moon back to Earth, to wipe the Martian menace from our streets and restore the human race. Players must manage ammunition and weapon types, conserve health and make use of their jet pack as they collect bonuses and purge the Martian foe.
Invaders is available for $0.99 from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch
