SpringBoard Invaders screenshotCydia does not often see many game releases, as most iOS games make it into the App Store unless they contain extremely offensive or objectionable content or go past what is allowed within the iOS SDK. The latter is the case with SpringBoard Invaders by Velocity Apps, which transforms an iDevice’s home screen (SpringBoard) into a Space Invaders style game.

The objective of the game is to shoot at your own app icons as they fall down the screen, using the accelerometer to move your “invader” and fight against the icons without running out of your five available lives.

For now, the game is only compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch, although a forthcoming update will add compatibility for the iPad as well as fix a current issue with Wraparound (an iOS tweak for jailbreakers that allows for infinite SpringBoard page scrolling).

SpringBoard Invaders is available on the Cydia Store for $1.00, and is definitely a must own for any jailbroken fan of the classic Space Invaders.
