A game that needs no introduction, Space Invaders, at one point someones bound to have played it; its one of those games that you can find tons of versions of the game in Flash.  Anyways… the whole point is to shoot the invaders.  They attack by scrolling down the screen at a slow pace that seems to speed up every level, they also shoot at you which you must dodge, but isn’t very hard considering you have 3 shields that gradually break down as either they or shoot at them.

Overall, the concepts simple and can be very addictive at times of gameplay, the black, white and green color scheme is dull, but can be forgiven considering the age of the game.
