Unfortunately, they get faster the fewer there are. How long can you survive. Instructions Use Left and Right to move Left and Right. Press A to fire your laser canon. You win the level when you destroy all of the invaders. Shoot the bonus rat for extra points. You lose when the invaders either shoot you, or reach the bottom of the screen.

6 Comment(s) Vakore Vakore Did you actually program them getting faster the fewer they are? Or did you purposely make them take enough ram so they they speed up do to more free ram? seggiepants seggiepants I increased their speed on purpose and increased the drum beat tempo too. tcmine64 tcmine64 Beginner Programmer I'm just starting out! I'm still trying to grasp the basics. Programming Strength Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself If he purposely made them take RAM, wouldn't that make the player slow too? Vakore Vakore Isnt that what happened in the original space invaders? seggiepants seggiepants Yes, in the original space invaders arcade the invaders sped up as their ranks decreased because the CPU just had more free processor cycles. Technically it is a bug, but the developer thought it added to the game and left it in. My program has them speed up as their rank decreases too, not because of reduced CPU or memory use, just because I told them to as I wanted to emulate the original. tcmine64 tcmine64 Beginner Programmer I'm just starting out!
