In­va­sions from space are com­mon­place in the world of videogames, but at least the Wekas do things dif­fer­ently. The start of each area sees one of their fly­ing saucers drop­ping off a clus­ter of boxes but only some of them con­tain an enemy, oth­ers house weapons which the game’s hero Waimanu can use – these in­clude ex­tra bul­lets, a pow­er­ful laser or a ‘shake’ weapon which takes care of nas­ties on the ground – and the rest are there to act as cam­ou­flage.

De­spite the cute graph­ics and jolly mu­sic, Weka In­vaders is a chal­leng­ing gallery shooter. Quick re­ac­tions are needed so pri­ori­tis­ing what to shoot and grab­bing the weapon power-ups are wise strate­gies. Each bat­tle has a strict time limit but it isn’t nec­es­sary to clear the en­tire play­field and merely tak­ing down all of the Wekas will end the cur­rent stage. It’s tempt­ing to go af­ter the other boxes for points as well, though. score 85%

[Mas­ter Sys­tem] Some­times the Wekas take a while to wake up. [Mas­ter Sys­tem] Blast­ing through the boxes us­ing a strong but brief laser power-up.
