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!

Needs a little consideration

I hate to give a game a bad rating when I can't even play it, but at the very least, if no hardware accelleration is detected, it could at least do a favor and not even attempt to use them. Once I load up this page, then the game instantaneously loads, it drastically slows down and it becomes a hassle to click the X button to hide the flash.

It's like putting a "beware of dog" sign inside the house.

Annoying after you lose your powerups

9 stars cause after you lose your stacked powerups there's almost no way to recover, otherwise an awesome game though. Also level 1 gillion is insane, i also like the epic lazer you start off with lol.

Games like these...

It's games like these that keep me faithful for all game devs, ahaha.

There's no doubt that I enjoyed myself playing this, played straight from level 0 well into level 346 before things got too fast. And the lack of all my stacked powerups made dying all the quicker. xD

I don't understand what everyone else's problem with this game is, the whole point is to shoot the invaders! :D

So myes, 10/10 5/5 from me~

Protip: Level 1gillion is really hard. o:
