ActionSoft Releases Insectoid, Its New Galaga-Inspired Space Shooter

ActionSoft has released Insectoid, its new high-intensity space shooter
for Windows and MacOS. In development for over two years, this game is
now available for download.

Insectoid is sure to appeal to anyone who grew up playing classic
arcade shooters such as Galaga in the 80's. Insectoid features
fast-paced, adrenaline-inducing gameplay, over 50 unique levels, four
custom ships, stunning high-res graphics, and a professional musical
score. Three finely tuned difficulty levels ensure anyone, from novice
gamer to expert, can enjoy the game.

Collect power-ups and use special weapons, including split ship, laser
beam, fireball, and shield, as you fight back swarms of angry insects.
Advance behind enemy lines and try to catch the enemy off-guard as you
aide human forces in galactic war.

Where Insectoid really stands out is in its attention to detail and
polish. Every minor detail in the game has been fine-tuned until it
feels just right. The game also features some rather inventive level
design. With levels designed by five different designers, each set of
levels has not only a unique feel, but also innovative new ideas,
keeping the gameplay fresh and challenging to the end.

- MacOS X 10.4 or newer OR Windows 7, XP or Vista
[Univeral Binary runs on both Intel and PPC based Macs]
- 1.2 GHz processor or faster (1.8 GHz recommended)
- 160 MB free RAM

Insectoid costs $19.95(US) to purchase. The trial version is available
as a free download.
