Insectoid Updated, Holiday Discount
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

ActionSoft has announced an updated for Insectoid, the company's new Galaga-inspired space shooter. Among other things the latest version fixes some issues where the game would not be visible after starting up on some systems. In development for over two years, the game includes over 50 levels, four unique ships, a variety of enemies, and three difficulty modes.

Insectoid is for anyone who grew up playing classic arcade shooters such as Galaga in the 80's. Featuring fast-paced, adrenaline-inducing gameplay, over 50 unique levels, four custom ships, stunning high-res graphics that look great even on a 30" display, and a professional musical score, Insectoid is a retro shooter fan's dream come true. Three finely tuned difficulty levels ensure anyone, from novice gamer to expert, can enjoy the game.

Collect power-ups and use special weapons, including split ship, laser beam, fireball, and a shield, as you fight back swarms of angry insects. Advance behind enemy lines and try to catch the enemy off-guard as you aide human forces in galactic war.

  • MacOS X 10.4 or newer or Windows 7, XP or Vista
  • 1.2 GHz processor or faster (1.8 GHz recommended)
  • 160 MB free RAM
  • Univeral Binary runs on both Intel and G4/G5 Macs
Action Soft has also announced a special holiday discount for the game, making it available for $7.99 from now until Jan. 1st, 2010. The game, which normally sells for $19.95, can be bought at the discounted price only at the web address listed below.

For those who still want to pay even less, ActionSoft is offering the game for only $4.99 to anyone who emails 50 friends about the promotion. Full details are given on the web site.
