Nice game, thanks for the code.

Tip for Linux users: Change the folder names form "Images" to "images" and "Sounds" to "sounds".
Because Linux is case sensitive for paths and file names it will not run until you do this.

Hi Kwai chang caine,

You are very much welcome.

I think a lot of the people in this forum are around the same age of old :) .. Earlier I found myself playing the game, just for the nostalgia of yesterday.

----------------------------------------

Updated:
- added a background
- refined Player and Alien bullets
- applied some minor improvements

Hey fellows, I remember "Scramble" (totally booring) and "Pengo" (funnier than pacman) later as well, but Space invaders is the best :mrgreen:

Thanks JHPJHP for spending this gift to us! Weird, just few weeks ago I wrote this game for a very smart watch (see here) :lol:
