Google and Taito have released a new Augmented Reality game that lets you take down virtual aliens in the real world around you using your phone. Called Space Invaders: World Defense, the game was created in honor of the 45th anniversary of the original Space Invaders video game.

In the new World Defense game, Space Invaders will spawn from buildings and rooftops, hide behind structures, and hover in the sky. So instead of Pokemon, you’ll be hunting for aliens. Google’s blog post says players can discover new Space Invaders in and around different neighborhoods. Players can also unlock special power-ups, team-up with other players, and share their achievements on social media with an AR selfie.
