Almost everyone knows the game Space Invaders, but only few know the story behind the invaders. This game is about them, and how they struggle every day with their only purpose: to get killed. Made in 72 hours for Ludum Dare #25 with the theme "You Are the Villain". My first finished game ever :D

Arrow keys: Move
Mouse: Push buttons

FIXES AS OF 2012/12/17 3.29 PM:
A bug when after death the invaders appeared halfway on the screen is fixed.
A continue button is added in the intro to make the text easier to read.

Collision is off because of my not too friendly code. I do have a fix for this but I don't know if I can change this entry or have to make a post-compo entry.

I might later add some other stuff, but that will be after LD ends.

"Right, you feel down? Let's eat some pie."

This is probably one of the better game that's been submitted to ludum dare 25.
the concept is pretty unique and i think it's good that your still updating it after submission.
There were a couple of glitches though. First off after i got new invaders the old ones were still stuck
onscreen. Also the writing on the wall would sometimes stay there on new games. i also think it would help if you made the tanks blow up or something when you hit them.

Thanks a lot for your feedback :). I'll try to fix those glitches asap (didn't have a lot of time for testing so I know there are a *lot* of glitches).

A fresh look of one of the classics in game history. I loved the idea and although the collision is not always fair (invaders disappearing while the bullet has already passed) it's a nice experience!

The game is not difficult, just lacks any kind of depth.

The idea "you are the villian" is fresh and your idea with the invaders giving them kinda annoying personality too. But the "game" is kinda..well hard to judge, maybe for 72 hours good, but at all dissappointing poor. But the idea..love it:)
