``An unknown alien armada from deep space is advancing through the Solar system. Defenders, stop this invasion before Earth falls.``

Advanced Invaders is an arcade shoot 'em up game with a sci-fi campaign through Solar system, multiple weapons, enemies, bosses and other surprises.

The player is in control of a ground defence, D-1, vehicle, with the task to shoot down all invading alien formations on the battlefield. Depending on Defender's performance, various aid (like weapon boxes or force shields) will be deployed on the field during the battle. Only when all swarms of invaders are destroyed, the player can proceed to the next phase of this all-out defence... but one should beware the alien capital ships, that won't wait for long to join the invasion should the defence prove to be efficient.

This game is made in spirit of retro arcade machines.


Advanced Invaders is a full game and these are some of the notable features:

  • Main game with progression map, 5 action-packed levels all around the Solar system and 1 very special level much different than standard game.
  • One unlockable game mode, once the main game has been beaten.
  • Challenging difficulty level.
  • Four types of standard enemies, each with its own unique attitude and destructive arsenal, and two types of big bad bosses.
  • Four different types of weapon in player’s arsenal and a quite a few unique to the aliens.


The control layout in the game, consists of directional controls and three main buttons: shoot, vertical thrust (AKA jump) and pick/brake.

All main buttons are  user bindable in the option menu. Player can map those on joystick/pad, mouse, keyboard or use virtual joypad on android. Directional controls are not user bindable and those are WASD/ARROWS/Joy Axis.


* OS x64: Windows 7 SP1+, Ubuntu 12.04+, SteamOS+

Nice little game. Stylish and more dynamic version of the classic shooter. It's hard though... I barely managed to pass the first boss. And that glowing ball of some kind was a funny surprise.

Thanks! :)

I aimed for old-school difficulty and that glowing ball (core) is there to offset some of it, once certain conditions are met.
