Attention span: 8/10 Simple game
Controls: 10/10 Responsive
Implementation: 10/10 Gets the most out of its size
Overall: 9/10 The best 1K game around

This is a mini Space Invaders-clone. The action is sort of slow, but it is supposed to be. Only one player bullet can be on the screen at one time. There are multiple levels, but no score. With each level increase, the enemies require more hits to kill. I'm not sure if the game ends, though. I've only gotten to 7 or 8 hits per enemy. This game provides simple shooting fun, for only a few bytes!

Compared to its competitors (Spaze Invaders=6KB, Galaxian=4.5KB, and Raptor=5KB), this game is only 1KB. If you can't fit one of the above more in depth games, this game is a must-have. Even if you can fit a different Space-clone, you might still want to keep this on regardless. The only small bug is the hit detection on the far right and left of some of the larger enemies does not work.

This game is second to ZTetris for the award of "game that gets the most out of it's size".
