Remember Space Invaders, that oh-so-fun console and classic arcade game that broke ground decades ago and ushered in a new era of gaming? Well, many of you visiting our site may be too old to remember Space Invaders, but you sure can play Max Damage and the Alien Attack from Multigaming and get a good sense of what the classic was like!
Being more involved and skill-based than many of the games on our site, Max Damage and the Alien Attack provides a nice respite from spinning reels and playing cards all day. If you are looking to add a bit of flavor to the overall free game experience, then this is a perfect game to take your mind off things it bit. It's also fun because it appears to be rather easy. What's more fun than shooting fish in a barrel?
Like in Space Invaders, the goal of the game here is to keep certain spaceships from making their way from the top to the bottom of the screen by shooting them. Your goal here is also to make sure that your spaceship doesn't take so much fire that you run out of health and explode.
You move through Max Damage and the Alien Attack by eventually shooting down all potential invaders. Once this occurs, you square off against a boss spaceship to move on to the next round. In total, there are three bosses, and you face off against each after you have moved through three levels.
There are three very simple commands in this one: move left, move right, and shoot. The first two are used by pressing the arrow keys on your keyboard, while the third is activated by pressing the space bar. Savvy gamers will very quickly realize that the way to make your life easier in this one is by pressing the "auto fire button" to automate the shooting.
