I think it is safe to say we have all heard of Space Invaders - in fact many of us on Team CrackBerry probably grew up playing the game. There are a few Space Invaders options in BlackBerry App World for the PlayBook but new this week is PGZ Space Invaders that I really like.

As you would expect there isn't much to the classic game, just shoot the attacking aliens and dodge their missiles that they will shoot at you. What I like about this version though is the simplistic colours,. With just green, black and white on the screen it retains its retro feel and that I dig. Controlling your craft is done using the PlayBook's accelerometer and firing your missiles is achieved with a simple screen tap.

And that's about it. The game will set you back $0.99 and it's a worthy price in my opinion. In fact, I'm of to play it again now.
