Space Invaders never seems to get old, as proven by this clock app and game for iOS devices. Space Timeders will let you waste good time before going to bed. The game is fun and the idea is pretty cool.
The game plays very much like the original, but the aliens in this version tell the current time with their formations. This means you’ve got exactly one minute to complete each level, before the level changes. And if you manage to finish the level in time, more aliens show up anyhow, bombarding you a la Galaga.
You can also switch the game into clock mode, and it just plays by itself silently as the time changes. Personally, I like to switch my iPhone off when I go to sleep, but if you’re the type of person that likes to leave their devices running all night then this might be the right app for you, especially if you love retro gaming and don’t mind a little game from time to time in bed.
Space Timeders is available for free at iTunes, but for $0.99 you can get rid of the rather annoying ads. I had fun trying it out and I’ll probably play it some more this week.
