I wanted to learn more about HTML5, especially the new canvas tag, so I came up with a little project. I decided to develop a completely web-based version of the classic Space Invaders game. It turned out well enough that I thought I would share it.

You can click the link below and the game will launch right on this page, or you can drag the link to your bookmarks bar (if you have one) and launch it from there.

The game is standards compliant and will work in Safari, Chrome, Firefox, or Opera web browsers. It should also work in Internet Explorer 9, but not the earlier versions that most PC users have.


Enjoy!
