Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a remake of the classic Space Invaders arcade game first released in 1978. The action is more fast-paced than the original, but remains a simple, fun experience.
Is It Any Good?
Your ship no longer comes equipped with a simple cannon. By shooting the right combination of aliens, you can acquire lasers, bombs, and multi-shot cannons for a brief period to wipe out multiple foes. You'll also encounter 'bonus rounds' where you can rack up additional points or bonuses like an extra life. While each arcade adventure ends after five stages -- there are 11 stages total between the difficulty levels -- it's easy to hop back in and play again to improve your score. The game also offers the option of two-player wireless competition. Overall, Extreme adds plenty of novel, fun concepts while still managing to evoke some arcade nostalgia.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
