This game is based on the classic Space Invaders game. You control a gun turret at the bottom of the screen, and must fight off wave after wave of alien invaders. Of course they can shoot back at you and kill you by touching you.

The game levels get progressively more difficult as you go along, with the aliens increasing in numbers and speed, and acquiring better, faster bullets.

Spinvaders features a point multiplier mechanism based on your shot accuracy. Each hit will increase the point multiplier (to a maximum of ten), and each bullet that goes off into space will decrease

nothing but a blank/grayed-out window when I launch it.

The only time I see anything is when I minimize the window to the dock.

Hmmm, don't know what the problem might be... I've had a few hundred downloads of this version so far, and no one else has had this problem.

Maybe your download got corrupted somehow. Try downloading it again, and see if it works.

This is a fun game. However, the first five levels are annoyingly easy, and the game crashes Python if you quit (hit 'esc') while in fullscreen mode. The sound samples also need some work, as the 'thunder' sample is absurdly loud compared to the rest of the game sounds.

It's a pretty fun game and I've burned up some time playing it. However, it gets boring after a while, since you always have to start from level 1, and it's a repetitive game. That's how space invaders games generally are.

Not bad for v0.2, I'd like to see better graphics and have a few ships fly around outside separate from the rest of the wave (Like in Bedlam II). Oh, and add some way of starting at a later level.

Spinvaders features a point multiplier mechanism based on your shot accuracy. Each hit will increase the point multiplier (to a maximum of ten), and each bullet that goes off into space will decrease the multiplier.

When the multiplier reaches ten, you acquire the "super-gun", which fires more quickly, is slightly larger, and is more devastating when it hits; The alien which is hit throws off a couple bits of shrapnel which are deadly to other aliens, and then it falls burning to the bottom of the screen, where it is deadly to you.
