Cosmic Invaders is a shooting game where player controls spaceship and try to shoot down the aliens. The level changes when the score reaches a certain level. There is a boss at the end of each level.

It was presented in the NEO Spring Coding Competition 2006 and ranked 3rd.

Objectives

If you shoot the enemies before they reach the bottom of the screen or collide into you, it will fill up the blue energy bar in the bottom right corner. When the energy bar is filled a powerup will appear.

There are three types of powerups that can be changed by shooting the powerup.

Health: fills your health up.

Weapon: gives you the spreader weapon (it will last for a limited amount of time). The purple energy bar at the bottom right corner shows how long the spreader weapon will last.

Bomb: gives you another bomb. Your bombs are displayed at the bottom left corner.
