The Attack of the Green Smelly Aliens from Planet 27b/6

This is a HTML5/WebGL version of a game I wrote on the Amiga back in 1991 for a competition to try and win a job with Peter Molyneux’s games company Bullfrog.

This special “21st Anniversary Edition” only has one (hard) level and no sounds effects but it does have the one feature that I couldn’t add in the Amiga version, which is the shots fired by the aliens and your ship destroy the shields, as in the original Space Invaders.

I was interviewed by amigapd about the game: http://www.amigapd.com/interview-alex-may.html

Someone calling themselves “Hungry Horace” wrote an infinite lives hack for the game in 2009!
