“Sounds complicated, but it’s quite the opposite, young and old will love this game. Nice big colourful aliens, humorous (even hilarious!) sound samples and fast action make this a simple yet addictive game.”
— Andrew, Falcon’s NeST PDL
“The game itself plays well with a good difficulty curve. The aliens start off moving in a linear manner giving you a chance to familiarise yourself with the controls before the more vicious bouncing and bombing baddies appear. The graphics are nice and cute and perfectly complement the style of the game.”
— Leon O’Reilly, Maggie 25 (March 1998)

“This version has improved graphics (colorful, attractive, and pleasing) and gameplay. All of the 42 classic levels are included along with a few new ones. A level editor is included so you can create as many great levels as you wish. This is excellent!”
— Atari Explorer Online (January 1996)
“It a basically a game of logical thinking, but one that can be both very frustrating and very addictive.”
“The plot is quite amusing – you are Bobbie The Hippie Ghost and have to hide your peace signs before you get raided. Makes perfect sense!”
— Leon O’Reilly, Maggie 19 (February 1996)
