Space Invaders

Space Invaders is a JavaScript game I wrote for the course Casual Games at Copenhagen School of Design and Technology.

The game is very simple: the player can move the spaceship using the cursor keys and can fire using the spacebar. The goal of the game is to gather as many points as possible: we lose lives by crashing into aliens and meteoroids or by letting aliens reach the bottom of the screen. As the game proceeds, aliens and meteoroids speed up gradually, therefore the game gets harder and harder.

The game was written using CreateJS, which is sweet, a super easy JavaScript library. Space Invaders is one of the most complete projects of my entire life. I’m telling you, the key to success is to make small commitments.
