Before I was wondering how I could pause the game.
The laser thing and the invincibility were interesting.

Wow! That's an intense and fun game!
I love how you lose a point each time you fire and all the crazy power ups and how levels start in intense ways. Got to Level 5, high score 692.
It's much closer to 1942 than Space Invaders. Needs a new name!
Alien Invasion 2311
Space Invaders 2942

I got to level 8. A score of 1862 points.
Nice game. Very funny!
Thursday, December 20, 2012 10:35 PMAnother interesting thing I got from the code is that it potentially has infinite number of levels which keep getting harder and harder.

Timo has the highest score!
I want to feature this game, but I need a new name! This is definitely not Space Invaders. Got a name, LitDev?
Do you want me to name it?
Earth's Last Stand

My high score is 2830 and small update to make the invincibility easier to see while playing, import GFR568.
I like Alien Barrage as a name.This version is just the same but has a web based high score (needs LitDev extension version 18.104.22.168+) HKM280.
