Space Invaders was one of my favorite arcade games, and I love seeing new and updated titles that hail back to those glory days. PolyBlast is one of those games, and it’s recently been updated to have an even more retro feel, along with some new content and features.
In PolyBlast, you’ve got three missile launchers that you can use to eliminate the alien enemies inching their way down to the surface. One of the biggest challenges of the game was running out of ammunition, but a new feature allows you to recharge your weapons if you run low.
PolyBlast has also added 60 new levels and some crazy power-ups. The best part, though, is that the game has been reimagined to have an even more retro look and sound, so you almost feel like you’re playing an arcade classic.
You can also see the promise of more to come, as a new Seasons screen allows you to play the Christmas levels and shows the upcoming sections for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter. I can’t wait to see what new content the developers over at Game Cooks have in store for us.
PolyBlast is a free download on the App Store, and it’s designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The game requires iOS 5.1.1 or later, and includes both ads and in-app purchases. You can also download the game on the Google Play Store, but that version hasn’t been updated with the latest content yet.
