It's not like there's a plot, you know. Just shoot the invaders as they come!

There are 4294967296 levels, since Flash doesn't know more numbers. Everything is procedurally generated, from enemy graphics (rather uncountable number of those) through their formations (at least several thousands of unique formations) up to the powerups (there are 32 of these).

And it's all packed in 50 kilobytes (It would fit on a Commodore 64)

Note:
This game requires hardware accelerated Flash Player 11 graphics!

FAQ:

Q. The game runs soooo slow...
A. You lack hardware acceleration see next question

Q. I see "No hardware acceleration" warning
A. The game uses latest Stage3D feature (hardware accelerated 3D graphics in flash). But as it's moderately new, there are still issues. Here are some things you can do:

1. Update drivers (seriously) drivers get fixes for flash player all the time, keep up!
2. Refresh cache ( hit Ctrl-F5 few times), there is a special HTML parameter needed, and you may not receive it, since old version of embed code is being cached on your hard drive.
3. Check if your hardware is supported:

(note this line: " [unsupported] Any Intel GMA driver before X.X.10.2021" )
4. Right click the game, choose settings, and tick the 'Enable hw acceleration' box. If this game lags too much, do this on other flash game and refresh this tab.
5. Google up to get compatible! There are more Stage3D games coming!

Q. The game doesn't run at all
A. You need to update Flash Player to version 11 (even if you don't want to play this), furtherly see point 2. above.

Q. Why do you make space invaders that have higher requirements than Skyrim?
A. Fun! I love making games! I did this overnight actually for Mini LD competition

I didn't see the incompatibility issues coming. I guess it's a good incentive for everyone to get FP11 3D stuff up and running. There is a ton of Stage3D awesomeness out there, and more is coming!

Fun, with bugs

So many bugs upon qutting with escape and restarting- laser status isn't reset, screen isn't cleared... fix please. Otherwise I can just get super lasers from low waves and crap.

You need to clear the screen yourself!

Boring, uncreative

Any game that you can get to lvl 17 in just by not moving and holding the space bar is a failure in my book. I realize that some find a 50 kb game appealing, but in this day and age I expect the game play to be at least better than the games around 40 years ago. The only appeal is the graphics, but if all I wanted was graphics, I would be on youtube(even youtube has a hidden game that is better than this).


Sosker responds:

Start on Level 1,000,000,000 and go through 17 more levels like that!

Great.

Fun, great, but for the love of god, do something about the Hardware acceleration. Make the game not load if it doesnt detect hardware accel, because it will load up and crash your browser while you try to play. My tip to people trying to play is to go to another flash > right click > settings > display > hardware accel.

Anyway, it's a fun game, and well done for only 50 KB, thats super impressive.

Hey good point! I will add that to the FAQ!
