I’ve had a lot of fun with this one. It’s complete with all of your alien friends that you remember. OK, not all of them. Yes, you can fit 55 aliens on the screen at once, but it’s very tight and they don’t have much room to move before they destroy your shields. So, I reduced the alien grid from 5x11 to 4x9. It’s still terrifying to see them approach your base in time with the music.
This one pushes the runtime to its limit with the number of sprites it has to keep track of. There will be some screen flicker, and the action will pause as each note plays. I still find the game very playable.
Feel free to remove the block that plays the music, and adjust the timing parameters to your liking to make the beginning of the game more challenging, if you like.
Most importantly, have fun! Happy Friday!
