Space Invaders Arcade Flash Game

Developed by Taito, Space Invaders was released to the arcades in 1978. The game consisted of a laser cannon being controlled by the player whose job is to shoot down the attacking aliens. You can move from left to right and also hide behind barriers that protect you from the enemy’s fire. However, the barriers can be destroyed in time and one shoot from an invader kills you. The aliens themselves move side to side and will slowly move down and the more you kill the faster they go. You either kill them all or they kill you or they reach the ground and it is game over. There is also a UFO that flies across the very top of the screen, if you kill it you get bonus points.
