Alien Havoc Coming to DSiWare

Creat Studios announce their first DSiWare title.

Creat Studios have just announced their first DSiWare title Alien Havoc that's due for a summer 2009 release. The guys at Creat Studios were kind enough to supply some screenshots of the game in action along with the official press release.

Below is the official press release that gives a bit more information about the upcoming DSiWare title.

Creat Studios (Canton, MA) today announced the upcoming release of their first downloadable game for Nintendo’s DSiWare™ service. An original Creat Studios IP, Alien Havoc has the look and feel of an updated classic era arcade game and is expected to be released for the Nintendo DSi™ via DSiWare this summer.

Alien Havoc is a throwback to the classic arcade game genre, putting gamers in command of a little alien who must pluck cows from farms on Earth, load them onto his spaceship, and bring them back to his home planet. The farmers, however, won’t let their cows go without a fight. Players must tackle wrapping farm mazes of confusion, play hide and sneak under the cover of tall grass, and throw veggies, rocks, or whatever they can get their alien claws on at the farmers as they fight to bring these valuable livestock back to their home world.

Alien Havoc Features Include:

  • Classic Gameplay. Getting back to the basics, your objective is to fight the farmers and clear each level of all cows and reach the end with the highest score possible.
  • Challenge yourself. 20 wacky levels, delivering a mix of mazes, puzzles and action.
  • Unlockable mini game. Work your way through the levels and unlock the hidden mini game.
  • Customizable. Choose from four alien heads (three of which must be unlocked) and customize the color of your alien’s body, head and eyes.

Alien Havoc is a true return to the classic arcade games from the 1980s with simple, yet wildly entertaining gameplay,” said Vladimir Starzhevsky, CEO of Creat Studios. “We are thrilled to be publishing our first game for Nintendo’s new handheld game system, and believe strongly in the downloadable games model that DSiWare supports.”

We'll have more information on Alien Havoc as it becomes available, as well as a full review when the title hits the DSiWare service this summer.

Looks good, I like the 16-bit sprite style. It should be a fun little game I think.

Anything that says "80's arcade" in the promo gets my attention right away.

This is good. It's very nice to see DSiWare broadening its selection of genres. Give it a year and I'm sure we'll have just as many true gems as WiiWare does. (And hopefully less crap, though I guess that's not as likely.)

i was totally expecting a sidescrolling alien hominid ripoff...this could actually be fun and different!



iSonic said:

Huh...this might turn out to be pretty fun. When I first saw it I was like, "Looks cheap, weird, and stupid" but now that I read more about it, it looks like it could be cool.

creat studios? Have I heard that name before, or is this their first effort. Did they make a game published by nintendo or a game on wiiware before? Or am I just thinking of Indi Creat or something?



Viral said:

Too bad I'm not interested in DSiWare....just not a good enough reason for me to own a 4th DS.




The graphics make me smile, but I won't be getting it because of just that. I need to know more about the game's substance

I'm liking the 80's-look to it as well. It looks like a game of my childhood. Could be fun
