To understand how brilliant this game is, one should look back a the original phenom and other, less successful attempts to revive it.

The old: 1978's Space Invaders took the world by storm. In Japan, this popular game caused a shortage of the 100yen coins needed to play a game. In the USA, it munched similar amounts of quarters. The simple gameplay appealed to all types of people in the then-new arena of video games. Two years later, Atari licensed the arcade game for release at home, and the box proudly trumpeted "112 VIDEO GAMES"! These were all slight variations on the theme, with moving bases, invisible invaders, co-op play, fat players, and other small tweaks. Neat!

The others: Space Invaders was brilliant thirty years ago. The "thump thump thump" sounds of the invaders, and their iconic look are known by almost everyone, but the old game is slow and tedious. As much as I want to love it now, it's just too crusty and dusty -- and younger people will certainly turn up their nose at the limited options for fun. I feel that I could get a high score on the old game but I usually quit before losing, as it's a chore to play. The game has been trotted out in "old faithful" and "reimagined" formats for just about every system available, but they all have suffered the same problems as the original: the turgid, formal, repetitive gameplay just didn't age well, and most designers felt that giving the game more flair would dilute the original feel, making it more like Galaga than Space Invaders.

The now: SPACE INVADERS EXTREME reboots the whole concept.

This is Space Invaders? It is, but then again it's not. It's new, hip, challenging, trippy, amazing, but yet it still is very much Space Invaders.

Square-Enix truly has made something old feel amazingly new again. It's respectful of the classic 1978 game, but this is NOT just a rehash or classic rereleased. This high level of quality for a "classic remixed" game is a true rarity, you might find it only a few other places (Pac Man Championship Edition, and New Super Mario Brothers would be 2 good examples).

This is the new definitive version of the game. Forget all the endless rereleases that have come out through the years, this is "the one".

It's still 2d, with movements limited to left-right-shoot. But, there are new stategies. There are new enemies. There are enemies that hide behind other enemies, sometimes many of them. There are no bases like in the traditional Old School Space Invaders.

There's an incredible variety in the types of invaders, and they have various attack patterns and formations. The invader attacks are much harder to avoid, especially without the bases to hide behind.

Some invaders shoot the traditional bombs, others shoot large lasers, others have shields that block against certain types of your attacks, others wear armor so you have to shoot them several times.

There are bonus rounds which vary as well. You might have to shoot UFO's before a timer runs out, or shoot a certain amount of invaders before the timer runs out.If you can beat the bonus round you earn Fever Time, where you can power up for a short time.

Shooting a group of the same colored Invaders can yield bonus points and various power ups, like lasers, bullet spreads, and bombs.

There are Boss Fights.

If you've played the original Space Invaders on the arcade cabinet 3 decades ago, then you should have no problems with this "Extreme" installment. You still shoot down enemy ships; however, it takes a while to get used to the more complex logistics that are contained within the game, so I'll try to explain it as best as I can. First off, there are several modes to choose from: Arcade Mode, Ranking Mode (no saving is allowed), or the much more satisfying Multiplayer mode.

On the bottom left screen, you will start with a Normal Cannon. As you progress with shooting down those pesky Space Invaders, you will eventually acquire one of 4 power-ups: Laser (blue), Bomb (red), Broad Shot (green), or Shield (silver). Each power-up is very helpful along the way but they don't last forever. You can gain these incredible power-ups by killing 4 ships of identical color. Next is the Feature panel. You will light it up by shooting down invaders in the specific order you see on the screen; however, the panel will disappear if the shooting combination is interrupted.

There's also a Round Feature mode in which you have to kill a certain number of ships or ship colors within a 15 second time frame. If you are successful, you will enter Fever Time mode. This is your chance to rack up some serious points and jackpot bonuses!! And let's not forget about the Roulette Feature, which sometimes gains you an extra player or other cool effects.

Overall, there are 5 stages to work through on Space Invaders Extreme (stages 3 to 5 are non-linear). Each stage ends with a boss; on stage 4, you need to hit the enemy ships on the top screen.
