Description: The first outposts fell within minutes and before morning there was nothing but radio silence. Did they come from a distant world or deep within the Earth’s crust? Perhaps they were formed by the very fibers of man’s worst intentions, a cosmic comeuppance for lives misspent. Whatever their origin, these are the facts: they don’t rest, they can’t be reasoned with, and their intent is singular; to extinguish mankind wherever they step foot. Shore up your outpost, take up arms, and hope the night ends with this terrible enemy returning from whence they came.

Review: The Homestead Invasion is an alien shooter with a difference. This time around you need to fortify your defences. While you only have a little shed to defend it is still a vital part of surviving the alien waves. While there are only a few types of guns at the moment with no melee weapons at all I felt this added to the survival tension of the game even if it wasn’t deliberate. I also struggled to hear the guy on the radio sometimes, but again I felt this did add to the tension of the game. While you don’t get a lot of content here for £6.19, grabbing it in a sale will soon counteract that. Yes, I wish there was a lot more to this game, but what there is was fun to play and at times oddly exciting!
