Space Invaders Game (2D Flash)

This capital castle was located in a beautiful country where peace was dominated. However, one day, the country was invaded by an unknown alien empire. Peace was stolen by them. They have destroyed most of the surrounding buildings. This capital was one of the last buildings and most important building to protect and defend with. In order to defend against the aliens, a hero (the player) was granted the power by the empire’s counselors to use the cannon power to destroy the aliens. It is a simple 2D animation flash game which allows a single-player to fire cannon balls from the castle to destroy the alien spaceships coming from the space in order to protect the castle. The objective of the game is to eliminate the alien empire. This flash game illustrates a war against the aliens where the player is granted with cannon power to protect the castle sited in a battleground. Within the time limit, the player is to destroy as many spaceships as possible to win the war. Developed in IT2846 Animation for Interactive Media at Nanyang Polytechnic.
