Arkanoid vs Space Invaders (アルカノイド vs インベーダー, Arukanoido vs Inbēdā) is a mobile game developed by Taito and published by Square Enix worldwide in May 2017. The game is a crossover between the Arkanoid and Space invaders franchises, featuring a mixed gameplay taking elements from both games.

StoryEdit

Invaders from another dimension have launched an all-out assault on the galaxy. Dubbed "Space Invaders", these mysterious life-forms have crushed countless planetary civilizations in their conquest.

To counter this dire threat, the surviving members of the human race have gathered their greatest heroes, and developed two space weapons to strike back at the Invaders: the photon-powered mothership Arkanoid, and the space skirmisher Vaus.

These weapons are mankind's only chance to repel the Invader threat and turn the tide of battle against the alien marauders. The Arkanoid and Vaus have been deployed to the front line. The time has come for the counter-attack that will decide the fate of the entire galaxy...

GameplayEdit

The player controls the Vaus inside a "safe zone" on the bottom of the screen, using it to deflect the bullets from the Invaders, bouncing them back at them. Much like in Arkanoid the shots will bounce at different angles depending on which portion of Vaus they hit. Additionally, the player can make a "smash" by quickly swiping the Vaus up, making it travel straight up. While the player cannot lose, each stage runs on a time limit, forcing the player to restart the level when the time is over. Each stage features a different formation of invaders which must be defeated, as well as bricks.

Deflecting the enemies bullets, as well as collecting orange items, will raise the "attack gauge", which makes the Vaus enter "attack mode" when full. When attack mode is activated, the Vaus will turn into a bow, which when fired will shoot a ball which will bounce off walls and bricks but pass through regular invaders. While attack mode is active the timer will freeze as well. Upon beating a boss every 15 stages, the player will unlock a handful of characters from various Taito franchises, each of them offering a special skill either immediately or during the attack mode.
