Interesting gameplay, fast paced and action packed
Invasion for Android is a great sci-fi strategy game with visually pleasant graphics and interesting game play, a hold the line type of game where strategy and quick reflexes are the key to survive the constant waves of attacks.
The game is easy to pick up as you need to drag and drop units on an 8x5 grid in a cell of your choosing (only four different units can battle at the same time) , after the positioning of troops is done the enemies will start their advance. You can change their position at any time during the assault to better make use of them and benefit from their different abilities, for example place some resilient troops in front and some archer behind them to assist. Yours and the enemy's units can only clash in an horizontal line. Players have five shield charges, each shield is destroyed when an enemy troop crosses the defense line. As the player progresses in levels additional troops will be unlocked and talent points will be available to customize the troops.
The gameplay is comprised of fast paced fights with lots of quick thinking required to have the best outcome. An amalgam of troops which include archers, machine gunners, ninja fighters, medics, snipers and more can be unlocked while playing.
Invasion is a great game with stylish graphics and animations and tops it off with a fairly new kind of gameplay that I personally enjoy and keeps the player tensed for the whole fight when they see the horde of enemies rushing to attack.
