Here’s a fun game to check out. It’s called OMG! Aliens and is for both Windows Phone 7 and 8 users. Gameplay is similar to most other ‘Space Invader’ like games and I’m really digging the 8-bit retro feel, both in aesthetics and music. Browsing the Windows Phone Central forums is a great place to find all sorts of new apps and games you might not otherwise come across. Lurking in there, I found OMG! Aliens and decided to give it a shot. Glad I did.
From the Windows Phone Store: “The wiggly 8-bit aliens clearly have a bad memory. Once in a while they forget that trying to invade Earth is a silly thing to do, and that's exactly the case. Join Doc on his quest to ward hordes of pixellated wannabe conquerors off his planet!” Here are some features of the game you can look forward to:
- An action-packed adventure with a retro arcade feel.
- Three difficulty modes, including a hardcore one.
- Endless random waves put your skills to an ultimate test.
- Four stunning super weapons to blast your way through!
- Over 30 achievements to unlock!
It’s straightforward and not too hard to explain the game. It’s just like Space Invaders, but just for Windows Phone. The ability to switch between tilt or touch controls was nice. By default you'll be using tilt to control your gun, but I found touch to be more for me.
The price is set at a reasonable $1.50, but includes a trial so you can check it out before buying. Take my word, at the very least do the trial and see what you think of it. I’m having mindless fun with it right now. You can grab the game right here in the Windows Phone Store or use the QR code below.
