Flashback - Space Invaders meets Phoenix... but better!  This game brings the best of retro gaming into the modern world of iPad.  Beautiful graphics, engaging storyline and characters.  The app includes many hours of unique and challenging levels with great weapons, power-ups, the ability to upgrade your ship and battles with 'bosses'.

Unlike other of the retro games available for iPad, this one looks GREAT and the controls are quick and responsive.  

I've played this game more than anyone in the family.  It's challenging as you progress through the game, but unlike other BLAST-EM games, this one is not over the top - but just the right amount of force necessary to win the game.  My preferred choice if they boys want to 'shoot stuff' as they have to focus AS WELL as play.  

Funny storyline keeps you engaged - it had me laughing out loud.  Little bit like a communicative arcade game would be if it could talk.  Lots of levels for beginners and experts.  All round an excellent addition to my (oops, I mean our) iPad Games collection. 


This iPad App is recommended by: iPad Dad - Google Plus


10 out of 10!

Age Group:


This game doesn't require reading to PLAY, however to follow the storyline your child will need to be able to read, though this is NOT NECESSARY if they're just playing the game. Between each level there is reading.
