Canvas Invaders

In 1978 Space Invaders was released in to arcades everywhere, now it has been remade as a canvas game as yet another demonstration of what some brief knowledge of canvas can do.

Old school space shooter

Controls are simple, with the cursor keys providing left and right directional movement and the space bar responsible for shooting those pesky aliens out of the sky!

Cool Thing!

When you are moving and hold space down you can trigger something like ‘autofire’. I’m not sure if that was intension or if it’s a bug. ( happened here using windows xp, Firefox 3.6)

But still, great stuff!

Looks great. Crazy repeater fire makes removal of invaders a bit trivial. No sound or bases for me.

Just wondering what the license for this is? I’m going to use this as a base for a more advanced version. ??

There is no need to maintain DVD collections or rent DVDs frequently to observe movies of one’s choice.
Just download the Gossip Girl TV episodes you missed through the leading torrent internet search engine in the web, Torrents
- HQ. Finding and downloading movies and music videos is becoming an easy task while using creation of certain entertainment websites.
