Invasive Species - A new ZX Spectrum game with a great intro tune!
Boy do we have a very unusual game for you today and this one is developed by The Death Squad for the ZX Spectrum! In what I'd class as an arcade puzzle game with a fantastic intro tune by Yerzmyey, you play as a yellow wasp like insect and must wipe out the other species before it's too late. Be warned though this is no easy game, as everything that's small in this game will be very painful if you don't deal with them in the right way.
When I first played this game after listening to the tune for the last 5 mins, I was unsure as to what to do. But as I played the game for a good while, the rules became clear and I found it difficult to put the game down. The task is simple, sting the big species correctly matching the coloured bars at the bottom, and everything else including the big plant must be pinned down before they will die.
Once that is all done, you should be able to collect the diamond before moving onto the exit and the next screen. Just be careful though, as with this many insects flying about, you can get yourself trapped and there's no way out!
A very enjoyable game indeed and with one of the best ZX Spectrum tunes I've heard this year!
