Voxel Invaders

Space Invaders gets re-imagined and remade all the time, and nobody bats an eyelid. But every so often one of these games does something interesting or different. Voxel Invaders mixes Space Invaders with the Galaxian/Galaga formula of wraparound screens and kamikaze dives, throws in a little modern space shoot-‘em-up, and wraps it all in voxel-based graphics — voxels are three-dimensional pixels.

When it’s not destroying you with overbearing difficulty, Voxel Invaders is a fun game and a cool twist on an arcade classic. There are a number of minor issues, but it’s definitely worth a look.
