Space Invaders Remake – Intermediate GMS2

Based on the original Space Invaders arcade game, this is our remake of it featuring custom graphics and sounds! This is an excellent intermediate level class or workshop for those who want a bit more challenge in game development. The project is somewhat easy to follow and can be completed in 3-5 hours in a workshop or birthday party setting. More time can be taken in a classroom setting, where students will be able to add more features to the game.

  • Introduction to game design
