Square Enix is bringing nostalgia to iOS gaming with the release to the App Store of Arkanoid vs Space Invaders. In a combination of elements from two of Taito’s classic arcade games, Arkanoid vs Space Invaders sees players getting to control the Arkanoid Vaus paddle ship to defeat wave after wave of Space Invaders. Gameplay is simple: reflect the bullets back at the invaders to break the blocks, and gather enough energy to trigger Attack Mode and destroy the enemy.
There are more than 150 stages to play through, over which you’ll get to use more than 20 different powers and unlock 40 different characters from the Taito legacy, all of which have their own unique abilities, such as shields and split ball. To make the gameplay more challenging, you’ll also have to defeat massive 3D Invader bosses, and there’s also a Hard Mode if you want to challenge yourself to the max. Ranked mode sees players attempting to attain the top position on the worldwide leaderboard with their high scores.
