Growing up, the game consoles in my house were not that sophisticated, at least compared to the ones released in recent years. However, that didn't stop me or anyone else in my generation from spending hours in front of the TV with their Colecovision or Atari systems. Browsing through BlackBerry World I came across Biterator and those simple 8-bit graphics was just what I needed.

Reminiscent of the classic arcade game Space Invaders, your mission is to blast waves of enemy aliens by using only your canon and three spare lives. 

Features

  • 15 levels, 10 deadly enemy waves each! 
  • 3 difficulty settings for both novice and hardcore gamers! 
  • 12 unique enemy species with unique strategies!
  • Epic and intense BOSS battles! 
  • Retro graphics! 
  • Amazing retro sound fx!
  • Game pad support for best arcade action!

Are the graphics simple? Yes. Does it remind you of all the fun you had as a kid? Of course! Retro games are awesome and there is no doubting it. Guess I'm showing my age but I do enjoy this game and it is quick, responsive, and addictive. 

At the time of this post Biterator is free to download for a limited time for BlackBerry 10. What are you waiting for? Nothing wrong with some old school fun.

Pretty sweet. Works great with the Wii mote controller.

Very smooth game play. Add more colour and it would be even nicer.

I just went into settings/bluetooth and it finds the Wii mote device. Turn on the Wii mote and put the Wii mote in pairing mode by pressing the 1 and 2 button. Select the device from your list of Bluetooth devices and choose connect. When it asks to connect to the device hit YES. Done. I'm on 10.2.1.1259

I had an old RCA tube TV which served me very well over a long period. It survived with my Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega 32X, Sega Saturn and finally my Sega Dreamcast. I then donated the TV because this thing would not die. Long life the trusted Tube TVs.
Now I sometimes game with my Dreamcast via my 47" LCD HDTV ;)

yeah but the version we get is linked to that stupid asinine games app and every time you get a score it pops open three or four times ruining the experience. I love PacMan as much as the next person but that combo ruined it on BB10.

Cool game, but we should have a whole slew of colecovision, and Atari 2600 games. I'd buy them all, starting with Zaxxon, and Donkey Kong

Vienna's original  BlackBerry Abuser.

Just be careful if you have epilepsy, the bright white flash after killing each alien could set it off in further rounds.
Otherwise a good game

The lights on police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances are notorious for causing momentary brain hypnosis in drivers of oncoming vehicles. That's a bigger concern than any video game. ;-)

GREAT GAME!!!! Space Invaders was one of my favorite all time games!!!! How's about a Missle Command clone?

Sometimes the simplicity of these old-school style games are a good reminder for today's youth.

Another game to install on my BlackBerry Z10 which is now my entertainment device while my BlackBerry Q5 is my communications command centre.

Thanks Alicia! Got to love the nostalgia! Please post a vid of you rockin' this Space Invaders-esque game! Also, is there a good source for more 8-bit classics?

On my Q10 I set the game for HARD and just hold my thumb on the screen.
When things would get "intense" I wiggled my thumb a little.
Even the "BOSS" didn't stand a chance.
Not very fun like Space Invaders. :-(
They really should make keyboard controls for these games when they are being played on a Q10.

Yep far too easy. Just keep your gun in either the left or right corner and keep firing. Works every time

Wii mote pairs very well with Z10. See my instructions further up. I'm on 10.2.1.1259

Works awesome with the GBA emulator as well. Search CrackBerry for "ulumu GBA" for the link.
