Space Invaders Clone

I wanted to learn lua and what would be better than writting a game to learn a programming language ;)
My goal was also to write a game in a day and here it is.

Creation Steps:

1.) Wrote a small documentation using pen and paper whats the game about, the needed art and sounds.
2.) Drew the sprites.
3.) Created Löve skeleton
4.) Added player with movement
5.) Added Blockade
6.) Added aliens with movement
7.) Added Missiles for Player
8.) Added collision check for player's missile
9.) Added alien's missiles with collision check
10.) Added bonus alien ship with collision
11.) Created the sounds
12.) Added the sounds
13.) Some testing with small fixes
14.) Created .love archive.

Warning: Art and sound may hurt you when you fall from chair - laughing :P

Thank you :) I was afraid to post this, because the evil sound and graphics.

Löve is great to do this in one day. The only thing i missed is to have more control over the sounds to stop the looping sound. Maybe i missed how to do this but i've no access to the channel where the sound is played like in Mix_PlayChannelTimed.

Hilarious sound effects :)
If I haven't written anything else, you may assume that my work is released under the LPC License - the LÖVE Community. See

Heh, nice sound effects!

Getting rid of the Thumbs.db file in the images directory makes the .love file a little smaller.
