Your mission is to "rescue" all humans from earth. Some humans will try to take your ship down. Each person you hit with beam gets you a point, but you will get combo bonuses if you abduct more humans in short time. As you progress you can unlock power-ups for your ship like Shields, Invisibility and Freeze Ray. You can also unlock six Flying Saucers, each with their own unique abilities.
The result is a fun game that's quick to play and approachable for most players. Add to this the multiplayer and time-trial mode and you have a game that packs more entertainment than you might expect.
Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+ for Fantasy Violence.
The follow up game, They Came From the Sky 2 contains frequent graphic violence and gore not suitable for younger players.
3+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. Young players need to have good timing or a willingness to learn this with repeated attempts (and failure). The simple two button controls make it approachable.
