Zeroptian Invasion is a mix of games that all cumulate in a twist on classic retro games. It does do a good job all though you so feel like you have cheated on the originals, it’s a lot more watered down with power-ups and the way it plays. Having Tate mode really shines on the Nintendo Switch because Ease but otherwise little else is different.
