What is The Invaders?
The Invaders is a fixed shooter game in which the player controls a space ship by moving it horizontally across the bottom of the screen and firing at descending aliens. The aim is to defeat five rows of eight aliens that move horizontally back and forth across the screen as they advance towards the bottom of the screen. The player defeats an alien, and earns points, by shooting it with the ships laser. As more aliens are defeated, the aliens' movement speed up. Defeating the aliens brings another wave that is more difficult, a loop which can continue without end.
The aliens attempt to destroy the space ship by firing at it while they approach the bottom of the screen. If they reach the bottom, the alien invasion is successful and the game ends.
