"Of course, Ankh-Morpork's citizens had always claimed that the river water was incredibly pure. Any water that had passed through so many kidneys, they reasoned, had to be very pure indeed."

Life on the farming planet of Vegetron is quiet, idyllic and (if we're being totally honest here) deathly dull; all your job involves is patrolling the fields in your spaceship, perhaps repairing the odd software fault on a harvesting robot and to fill the long, depressing gaps between, chatting on the galactinet. But things take a turn for the interesting when some alien spores land and begin to infect the crops; suddenly there are mushrooms everywhere, growing at an incredible rate and each one is at least twenty feet tall! Now would be a really good time not to be on Vegetron, so you clamber into your ship and head for the spaceport to use their interstellar launch facilities.

In order to escape the now hostile Vegetron, the idea is to simply make your way up to the top of each screen in turn - but beware of those mutant mushrooms that are constantly appearing (watch how they move, there may be ways they can be relatively safely avoided) and you'll have to avoid or shoot the loopy farming robots that are roaming around out of control. As you progress, you'll enter areas that contain more and more harvesters and, if you're good enough, you may eventually escape from the fungal nightmare.

Review "The game is a clone of a game from the 80s which I have not played but which people tell me was enjoyable in a quirky kind of way. Invasive Action actually has the potential to be enjoyable in such a way."
