Alien Strike

How Sirius is Alien Strike?

Alien Strike (.99) by Red Crystal Studio is an app I thought I’d give a try since it struck me as kind of retro looking, cheap and probably not too hard to master.  Well, two out of three ain’t bad.

The idea of the game is simple enough, pilot your flying saucer through the gauntlet of hills and overhangs, avoiding or shooting the other ships, and houses while gathering some bonus points by flying into them.

I have nothing against simple games.  I don’t even necessarily care if the look or sound the best (as long as they look and sound better than something I could do).  However, when a game doesn’t play well all the rest sort of really doesn’t matter much.  Unfortunately, that seems to be the case with Alien Strike.  What could have been an all right Defender clone has such a wonky control scheme that it’s almost not playable unless you set it to indestructible mode, at which point it’s no longer any fun anyway.
