The classic arcade game Space Invaders was released by Taito in 1978, and quickly became a giant hit in both the arcade and on the Atari 2600 game console. Invaders is my take on this classic arcade game. This is one of the first games I wrote with my 2D webgl Typescript engine. Right now I'm feeling out what I need to add to the engine. At the moment I'm using it for simple old school 2D arcade games. Eventually I would like it to be able to easily create new 16 bit style games for the web.
The controls are pretty simple and follow the classic game's control scheme.
- Left Arrow Key - Move Left
- Right Arrow Key - Move Right
- Space Bar - Shoot
Move your ship left and right shooting at the aliens and avoiding their shots at you. If the aliens land your ship will be destroyed.

This is my take on the classic Atari arcade game Asteroids. Point your ship at the asteroids and shoot, but don't run into those giant space rocks.
Spades Card Game
Spades is a classic trick taking card game. Played in pairs, bid the number of tricks you believe you can take after you see your hand. Spades is always trump.
This is my version of the classic Taito arcade game Space Invaders. It has more of an 8 bit feel than the original Space Invaders, which was black and white.
