OMG! Aliens brings 8 bit arcade action to your smartphone

Published by at

From the same team that brough the horrifically addictive Numberrific to Windows Phone comes OMG! Aliens, a classic vertical arcade shoot-em-up with a huge dollop of retro graphics and old school styling.

There's more to 'retro' than simply creating blocky graphics, and I'm happy to write that OMG! Aliens has the right feel in all the areas. The control system might feel sluggish to those used to twitchy 3D games but it reminds me of titles like Galaga and Darius, the difficulty level is challenging, the enemies are relentless (and follow fixed patterns) and the whole experience just feels right.
