What is 8-Bit Invaders about?
8-Bit Invaders! is a fast-paced, retro Real-Time Strategy game for the PC. Control the military might of the GALACTIC MARINE CORPS or invade with the devastating power of the alien CRANIOIDS! No matter which side you choose, everything in 8-Bit Invaders! is easy to understand for beginners and hardcore gamers alike. Collect resources, build your army, and then crush your opponent!
After 8-bit armies and 8-bit hordes, i. e. soldiers and tanks from Command & Conquer, as well as orcs and knights from Warcraft, now Starcraft with its aliens and spaceships in the form of 8-bit Invaders is entering the 8-bit game series, and I as a fan of all RTS (Real Time Strategy) games really enjoy pulling up my base in a hurry so that my defenseless, and still somewhat tired collectors are not already overrun by the enemy's tanks while I am pulling up my first powerhouse. That means, the game speed is relatively high, even if not quite as high as in the old times like Command & Conquer Tiberium Sun, Red Alert etc. . The units move comfortably fast across the field, some units can even climb hills and walls directly thanks to jetpack or other abilities, which is actually an advantage. And by that I meant ground units, airplanes already have the appropriate. . . well . . . Requirements to be able to fly. As before, owners of the predecessors can play the old cards with the fractions from 8-Bit Invaders and vice versa, the new cards with the fractions from the predecessors. New campaign missions have of course been added, which are fun thanks to the well-built maps and gradually become harder and harder, at least if you don't play on simple :)If you're a fan of RTS Games and want to experience a bit of nostalgia in an effective 8-bit look, you're welcome here too!
