[prMac.com] London, UK - MeYuMe is pleased to announce the introduction of Invaders World Tour 1.1, a mashup of retro arcade games, updated for the iPhone and iPod touch. Reminiscent of such classics as Space Invaders and Galaxians, players must shoot and destroy formations of attacking aliens who drop bombs as they descend to Earth. Firefights grow more frenetic as players advance through 60 levels, in command of their ship and weapons, maneuvering behind fixed energy shields. The game features advanced graphic simulations of smoke, flames, explosions, shock waves, and coronas powered by the Torque 2D Game Engine.
There are a variety of enemy invaders including Swoopers, Saucers, Kamikazes, Crawlers and Packers, that the player must destroy while protecting his ship and shields. Aliens attack a city in each of the following countries: USA, Canada, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, China, Singapore, India, Australia, and Vietnam. There are five waves of attacks on each city from morning till night. Failure to complete any level leaves the city a thermonuclear wasteland, its landmarks and artifacts in ruins.
* Save the world from alien invaders
* 60 levels of play
* Resume game option
* Advanced graphics and animation using Torque 2D Game Engine
* Player controls weapons, ship and shields
* Player collects powerups to upgrade weapons, ship and shields
* 12 different cities are under attack
Players tilt their iPhone or iPod touch to move their ship, and tap the screen to fire. Players collect power-ups to recharge their weapons and shields. Beginning levels are easy, but become progressively more difficult, until the nearly impossible final levels. The game remembers where the player left off, so gameplay can resume at any time. A global scoreboard allows players to enter their high scores.
Adding a level of graphical resolution and realism never seen in games like the original Space Invaders, Invaders World Tour provides both action and entertainment. The game uses the Torque 2D Game Engine, whose physics are modeled on Newtonian principles. Solid bodies and their behaviors are realistic, and energy events are rendered in convincing detail.
* iPhone or iPod touch
* iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* Application size 8.2 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Invaders World Tour 1.1 for the iPhone and iPod touch is available now for just $0.99 (USD) at the App Store in the Games category. Review copies are available upon request.
