Inkvaders combines cartoonish 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.
