Gear Up Because it’s Time to Save Earth

*Cue Dramatic Music*

Put on your red and blue latex overalls and cape because it’s time to save Earth from the horrors of adorable aliens set on extinguishing all life as we know it. “Everyone you’ve ever known is now relying on you to fend off a devastating attack from space.

Will you accept the mission?”

Well you better, because that’s exactly what you’ll have to do when you pick up your phone and play Save The Earth by XDA Forum Member jay613. A side-scrolling arcade game, you take on the role of ‘Red ‘n’ Blue Latex Man’ in his honorable mission to save Earth. Control him with the on-screen control pad as you shoot waves upon waves of enemy aliens all the while collecting stars used as currency necessary to upgrade your gear, attacks, skills, and attributes.

Delivered with some gorgeous 2D graphics that really stand out and accompanied by appropriate music playing in the background, the game play really is quite fast-paced as you’re maneuvering and dodging your way around the aliens, shooting them, and collecting the stars that are dropped. Completion of missions will unlock different areas of the world you must defend, and achievements and rankings are also thrown in to keep things interesting.

Save The Earth is a well designed and refined game that excels on many fronts such as game play, graphics, and variety. It’s a  great side-scroller that fans of the genre will thoroughly enjoy while killing time. The app is compatible with Android versions 2.2 and newer and free from the Play store. More information can be found in the original thread.
