Space Invaders – now with added Llamas

If last year’s DS version is anything to go by, Space Invaders Extreme will be an essential purchase when it arrives on Xbox Live Arcade.

Perhaps even more so now that it has been revealed that the bovine loving Jeff Minter has been roped in. Taito has asked him to provide the engine that makes the backdrops all nice and trippy – if you downloaded Space Giraffe, then you should know what to expect. Moo!

Minter is also working on Gridrunner +++ for Xbox Live Arcade, which, likewise, looks like the inside of a pilled-up raver’s brain.
