HSC Season 3 Week 21: Astro Invader


Recommended Posts

Astro Invader

Using buttons to move left, right and fire, you attempt to ward off invading aliens and their flying saucers. The aliens are dropped off from a saucer and stored in multiple columns until a column is full, then the aliens in that column descend, one by one, and attack. Also, the saucers sometimes descend to attack; if they are not destroyed, one ship is lost.

Tips: Try to clean as much as possible the two inside columns on each side. This will give you place to avoid explosion by placing yourself in the middle and, for a while at least, have time to move on the right and left end to shoot the saucers.
