Space Invaders

NiFTy Arcade’s fourth NFT mini-game is an homage to Space Invaders, the first fixed shooter of the shoot’em up genre of games originally developed by Tomohiro Nishikado in 1978.

In this game, the player moves a cannon horizontally across the bottom of the screen and fires at the aliens overhead. The enemies shift downward and move faster each time they reach the edge of the screen. The goal is to eliminate all of the aliens before they reach the bottom of the screen.

Version 1.0 of this game features a single 12×5 grid of enemy aliens for the player to destroy. Future plans for this game include adding additional levels and powerups.
