Attack of the Earthlings is a humorous, inverted take on the familiar alien invasion story, packaged within a decent turn-based strategy game.

Whilst clunky controls and uninspiring visuals hamper proceedings, Attack of the Earthlings nonetheless offers an intoxicating mix of satisfying strategy, well designed levels and guffaw inducing humour.

A funny turn based strategy game for those who are looking for something more brainy and deep than the average.

The cartoony graphics and over-the-top character animations give it a nice, retro horror-flick feel that compliments the gimmick it seems to be going for.

All things considered, Attack of the Earthlings is a good, fun and funny game. While it's fairly short and has very limited replay value, the time you spend with it is genuinely fun. More than that, it's funny where most games will feel forced or simply re-use aspects to their death. It may not surpass even other indie titles like Xenonauts. This doesn't detract from what is an altogether good experience and one that's well worth playing if you're a fan of the genre.

A fun turn-based game, with a catchy narrative and some good ideas. Too bad for the lack of longevity and a low replayability. It won't be a smash hit, but if you are into this type of games you should give it a try.

Fun and challenging, though a bit short, with simple graphics and weird interface, Attack of the Earthlings is a good strategy game and brings a very unique and intriguing variation to the genre with considerable success.

Acceptable turn-based strategy with hungry aliens and good gameplay...for a while.

If lastability and replay value are the sacrifices needed for tight and innovative design, then Attack of the Earthlings signals a welcome change in a saturated genre. I for one welcome our new insect overlords.
