Update: The Space Invaders Android project is now available here. Android Space Invaders coding tutorial.

I have just finished having a lot of fun putting together a simple Space Invaders clone for Android. The game has a few extra features compared to the Android Breakout game project that I posted last week and builds on knowledge and techniques learnt in this project as well.

It has moving, thinking enemies (invaders) that get lower, shoot at the player and bomb his shelters. The shelters crumble a bit when they are hit as well. This project also features a crude internal animation timer so that the invaders flap there arms just in time to the ever quickening, menacing sound; like the Arcade classic from 1978.

It takes a while to write up these game projects but I hope to have it posted by the end of day on Friday 27th May.
