    SALE!!! SAVE 50% - GAME DOWN TO 0.99 USD!!!
    I just set it through iTunes Connect, it will probably take some time until they change it.

    10 000 DOWNLOADS!!!!!
    Thank you all for your support!!!
    Just check reviews in U.S. Appstore

    New version (1.3) aviable. It took Apple 12 days to approve it :-(
    Changes - some bugfixes, speed improved and more achievements added!

    Lite version:
    http://itunes.apple.com/cz/app/invaders-from-space-free/id391685339?mt=8

    Game like Space Invaders, but with many new features!
    Defend earth against horde of aliens!

    Game have 3 difficulty options and 30 levels,
    6 upgreadable weapons (3 have to be unlocked).

    After every third level you will enter shop,
    where you can upgrade your ship armor, shield, speed, weapons...

    OpenFeint included! (Leaderboards, achievements)

    First review (U.S. appstore) thanks!

    Ok, the dev was very kind enough to give me a promo, so I thought I would give some early impressions. Upon startup, nice clean interface and the obvious retro aesthetic was clear. The game plays very similarly to space invaders. Its not the first and certainly won't be the last. Upon initial play, I thought the controls were slow and sluggish, however, this was quickly remedied by spending some of the credits received from destroyed invaders on upgrades from the shop which becomes available after 3 stages. Once I started upgrading, things got much better and I really started enjoying some retro goodness! The game auto fires for you so it's just a case of steering, not sure f some people would prefer direct finger control rather than left and right arrows?
    Openfeint is included, but could definately use some more achievements and some variety e.g finish a stage with no shield damage, or finish with only 10 shield remaining. Just to add a bit more replay value?
    Many thanks to dev for the promo, will post an AppStore review when I have played more.

    Price is 1.99 USD

    Hi, I bought the game and it is great, I too think that there should be more achievements, I am looking forward to them!

    Question - I have just three weapons in shop, why? I saw six weapons in the video...

    Thank you for answer
