Quick Look: Retaliate is an arcade-style video game that is very similar to Space Invaders. The remote controls your movement, shield, and firing. When the game starts out, you have no ammunition - only your shield. Activate your shield (down arrow) and absorb the bombs being dropped on you to gain ammo, as well as to destroy the dive-bombing alien ships. Don't hold the shield too long or it will run out of power. Once you have collected ammunition you can fire back at the ships using the up arrow.
There are four different skill levels available: Easy, Normal, Hard, and Extreme. You can also post your score in the online leaderboard selecting the option to let Roku share your name with the game when you load it. The Top 10 scores for the difficulty you are playing will display at the end of the game. Top 10 scores for all four difficulty levels can be found at the end of the game when all of your ships have been destroyed
A $0.99 upgrade lets you fully customize the color scheme of your ship and your shield and provides an unlockable "Hangar" screen that includes 4 new ships that can be used.
