MARKHAM, ON, Canada -- New from Universal Space, better known as Unis, is a two-player children's redemption game that builds on the success of the company's popular Dino Pop. The new game, called Astro Invasion, is the latest in the manufacturer's family series.
Astro Invasion challenges players to lob colorful balls into the mouths of two hungry alien invaders or their two robotic confederates. More experienced players can tackle the greater challenge presented by two spaceship engines with spinning needles, located at the back of the playfield.
The game was introduced to the European market at the recent European Amusement and Gaming exposition in London. Distributor Steve Perkins, Instance Automatics (Huttoft, Lincolnshire, England), predicted that Astro Invasion has the potential to be as successful as Dino Pop, Ducky Splash and Cheeky Monkey, three of the top games in Unis's family series.
Dino Pop is a one-player game starring an animated pink dinosaur; the player attempts to throw as many balls as possible into its gaping mouth. The dinosaur moves, which increases the challenge. Cheeky Monkey is a child-size basketball simulator played with miniature balls.
