Malaysia-based mobile developer Illogical has released Block Invader, an iOS shoot-'em-up that meshes an 8-bit graphics style with a 3D gameplay environment.

Block Invader is a vertically scrolling shooter that swaps out pixels with 3D cubes, creating a distinct look for the game's ships and backdrops. Players are able to slow down time in order to dodge waves of enemy bullets, and a chain-based combo system provides a variety of ways to rack up high scores throughout the game's randomly generated levels.

Block Invader is priced at 99 cents. A free Lite version is also available.
