STATUS
Space Invaders comes to the DS in a decent but rather uneventful edition.
The main problem is that it is now completely sidelined by the highly entertaining duo of both Space Invaders Extreme (2008) and Space Invaders Extreme 2 (2009).

STATUS
Space Invaders Pocket for the PSP suffers from the exact same problem as Space Invaders DS: it has since been completely eclipsed by both Space Invaders Galaxy Beat (2005) and Space Invaders Extreme (2008).
Still - if it's just the classic game you're after, this is a perfectly valid option.

The manic Space Invaders Extreme hits the PSP, in a slick version that benefits greatly from even better visuals and sound, but for some reason - no Wi-Fi multiplayer.

Following the huge success of the first Space Invaders Extreme (2008), Taito return with an even more crackpot Space Invaders remix featuring new stages, weapons and challenges.
Recommended!
