This is my first game. I set out to do a version of Space Invaders to help me learn Actionscript 3. Then it seemed natural to let the flying saucers fire at you or your bases. One of the flying saucers drops bombs on the bases to try and destroy them. I have plans for a kamikaze saucer and one that fires homing rockets at you. I also plan to include mochiads leaderboard for online scores.

Since getting feedback I have decided to make the following changes....
1) Get rid of the delay before you can fire again. This will speed up the firing rate.
2)Add a button to disable the space backdrops. This will make it run smoother on old machines.
3)Add a Pixel Level button with Low,Med,High settings, which will control the number of pixels created when object explode. So that if you have a slow machine you can set it to Low. And if you have a powerful machine you can set it High. It will default to Medium.
4)I am getting rid of most of the original sound effect and replacing them with proper explosion sounds.
5) Getting rid of the music and trying to find a new more appropriate piece.
I will upload the new version within the next few days
