If you enjoy a game which involves destroying alien spaceships at breakneck speed whilst risking apoplexy, then give this a try.

The aim is to heroically destroy the waves of invading nasties which descend from the top of the screen. Do I hear someone say that space invaders does that too? Well that's true, but in Arcadia you have no protective shields, the aliens move randomly and are meaner and the pace is faster. On the other hand, you move your space ship in all directions, which makes life slightly easier.

The use of graphics animation are excellent and highly professional. The use of sound was good, only occasionally resembling a partly blocked drain or worse.

If you like arcade games, buy Arcadia, you won't be disappointed.
