Description:
Sometime in 2007, I worked with iRiver to create a few custom games for their portable media player called the clix, and it's predecessor, called the U10. The 4-way rocker based screen allowed for simple casual games using the Flash runtime.

This particular piece of game content; "Alien Invasion" was written using Flash Lite version 2.0, and was one of the earliest games developed on this platform.

Alien Invasion was one of the 1st shoot'em up games for their device. The game featured multiple levels, sound effects, and a very easy to use interface based on the unique layout of the iRiver PMP among the game content screens.
