Devastro... Aliens invade... again!?

It's time to teach them a lesson they'll never forget. You will command a small squad of troops who are eager to meet all kinds of extra-terrestrial lifeforms... and kill them.

Blast the aliens with grenades, crush them with cars and tanks or mow them down with the good old-fashioned machine guns.

Sometimes team work is essential. Order your troops to guard an area and go scout the surroundings. Then strike with all the firepower you have.

Your troops get promoted for each completed mission - if you take good

This is a fun little game. It has a nice pace and some little surprises too. Played it the whole way through and so did my nephew. We never had a crash that I remember, it has been a while though (version 1.5). I am looking forward to playing the new version.

Simply will not launch on my MacBookPro unless it is set to run under Rosetta.
Do a Get Info (command - I) and check use Rosetta.

The game itself is fun, but it has the ability to freeze my entire mac, forcing me to reboot. This is reproducible on my computer by simply failing a level and having the "Try again" screen pop up. At this point if I am in full screen mode I am SOL. If I am playing in window mode, I can use the keyboard to switch to Finder, start Process Monitor and kill it.

Let me rephrase... it doesn't "freeze my mac" but it does seem to block input and a slight race condition occurs.

If you continue to hold down the Command-Option-Esc hotkey, it will eventually cause the game to quit. But it does take a few seconds on my iMac.

Great little game that has fun graphics and is easy to play. I like how the aliens fly into pieces when they are shot.

Great work! This is a really straight forward and fun game to play. The dialogue between characters actually made me laugh out loud. The graphics are cool, almost like claymation. Stable too.
