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!

Nice concept

It is nice as a retro game concept, but it is not really a game a this point.

Anyway, came here to ask you why do you bother putting games on the internet if you don't want them distributed? Put a link to you website/portfolio and and ad or something and let people "steal it". Speaking of that, I didn't even see a "play it here instead".

Bug?

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I can fly out the bottom of the screen and neither the invaders or their shots can hit me.

They'll eventually get you ;)

At first I thought it sucked but...

...then I kept playing. It's as simple and straight forward as a game can be, while still ramping up in difficulty quite nicely. I really appreciate the fact that you put the options to just skip straight to Level *extremely high number*, because, seriously, if you're complaining about the difficulty being too low you didn't go past level 100.

Another thing for those that just don't seem to get it: Read the freaking Author Comments. Starting to think no one ever reads those things.

3.5 out of 5 (rating 4)

Not bad because of the nature of the game, but also not great because of the nature of the game.

Lag Kills

Maybe my Flash isn't up to date then, but every time I died, it was because of lag, not enemies. The game seems fun, but it's really annoying when you're fighting the lag moreso than the enemies.

Also, on most keyboards, Space Bar will interfere with diagonal motion, so if you don't tell people "hey, you can use other buttons", they might never figure this out and get mad.

That might be why your voter score is lower than it should be.
