We got a barrage of positive comments when we posted up the trailer for Chaos Invaders a couple of months ago, so it's great to see the game finally land on the interwebs. What looks like a Space Invaders clone turns out to be something rather different.
Shooting an alien causes it to fall down, and moving your ship in the way will catch it. The idea is to catch multiple aliens on your ship, then click to fire them all back up the screen and knock even more down. Shooting aliens off the top of the screen will add time to your counter, while allowing aliens to fall off the bottom will reset your combo. There's plenty of variety to be found, with boss battles that fall apart as you fight them, levels baseds around simply catching falling aliens, and strong barriers than need to be blasted apart with aliens rather than your normal fire.
All good fun, with great music too - I can definitely see this one becoming a big online hit over the next week. Give it a play over at Kongregate.
