Faithful IF-remake of ęSpace InvadersĽ, September 25, 2009

A pretty faithful IF-remake of Space Invaders: The aliens drop their intergalactic missiles at you; you fire at them with your gun. As a game in itís own right, I suppose it would be quite a disaster. But, of course, now, itís not a game in itís own right: itís a rendition in text of an old graphics video game. That makes it kind of corny funóto players who are familiar with the original game, that is.

I donít think thereís a way actually to win this one (which is quite fair, since there never was a way to win Space Invaders in the first place, was there?), but I didnít have the superhuman patience nor the subhuman pigheadedness to keep playing long enough to be sure of this.
Also, at a certain point, the author introduces an original element to the game Ö
