Invaders

Invaders is a fixed shooter in which the player moves a laser cannon horizontally across the bottom of the screen and fires at aliens overhead. The aliens descend in rows that move left and right as a group, shifting downward each time they reach a screen edge. The goal is to defeat wave after wave of aliens with a horizontally moving laser to earn as many points as possible.

The game ends immediately if the invaders reach the bottom of the screen. The aliens attempt to destroy the player's cannon by firing projectiles. The laser cannon is partially protected by stationary defense bunkers (could be text or image) which are gradually destroyed from the top by the aliens and, if the player fires when beneath one, the bottom.
