Twin Shooter: Invaders is a clever twist on the arcade blaster with a cool multiplayer component. It made me think of classic table-top arcade games with the buttons on the side and a place to put your soda pop.
In single player you're controlling two ships, one down each side of the screen. They can only slide up and down and they're firing constantly. You need to blast back waves of attackers.
If one hits your base it's game over. If you accidentally shoot the ship on the other side of the screen, it's game over.
In multiplayer the set up is the same, but you and a friend are controlling one ship each. You could just shoot each other, but the challenge lies in working together to get the best score.
The game doesn't rest on its laurels either, throwing in ships that can only be shot from one direction, boss fights, and a handful of other ideas to keep you on your toes.
Coupled with a neat retro look and a solid soundtrack, this is a solid arcade blaster that comes to life when you've got a friend or enemy sat opposite you.
