We are all used to seeing our favorite game fanchises making an appearance on the iPhone, but usually this is in game form. Taito are releasing seven stylish Space Invader themed applications, letting owners show their love for the classic game.
SPACE INVADERS Business Cards
This application allows users to make their own digital business cards featuring their favorite SPACE INVADERS characters. (Patent pending.) In addition to the standard contact information, space has been provided for a homepage link, Twitter account, etc. Touching the Twitter account name displays that userâ€™s most recent tweet. Business cards created with this app may be transferred to othersâ€”physically â€œslidâ€ from one touch screen to anotherâ€”via a Bluetooth connection and stored in the included card album. Itâ€™s also possible for two iPad owners to exchange business cards, or between an iPhone and an iPad, spreading the fun even further.
(This application was designed for the iPhone and iPod touch but is also compatible with the iPad.)
SPACE INVADERS Calculator -FREE-
This calculator app is packed with hidden SPACE INVADERS-themed gimmicks, with game sound effects played whenever calculations result in certain special numbers associated with the classic arcade game.
(A slightly modified version of this calculator is also available as a paid app.)
SPACE INVADERS Battery Meter
Decorated in cool SPACE INVADERS design motifs, this handy battery meter application shows how much battery power and usage time remains. Remaining time estimates are provided separately for a variety of categories: standby, music playback, video playback, web browsing, and voice conversation.
The SPACE INVADERS Memory Status application gives you up-to-date information about how much of the deviceâ€™s memory is in use, while the Flashlight illuminates dark spaces with glowing SPACE INVADERS characters. Boasting plenty of retro arcade flavor, the SPACE INVADERS Clock stylishly keeps the time while featuring periodic appearances by a familiar enemy. Ideal when cooking, the Timer counts down the minutes and seconds, SPACE INVADER-style.
