8-Bit Invaders! is an indie retro RTS game developed and published by Petroglyph, a company set in Las Vegas that is known for games such as 8-Bit Armies and 8-Bit Hordes. The game was released yesterday on Steam and currently has a 25% discount, which players should look out for before it expires.
In this game, players get to choose two sides that they can control, Galactic Marine Corps or the invading aliens Cranoids. The game mechanics are fairly easy to understand, so anyone can play. Players collect resources in order to make an army that will crush their opponents.
8-Bit Invaders! boasts 24 missions for the single-player that will challenge players and award them with various achievements. You can play the game either co-op or solo, whichever you prefer. The co-op contains 10 additional missions so find a buddy and get to invading. Finishing the co-op will grant players a free copy of 8-Bit Hordes, so be sure to participate.
