More information:
DX Invaders is a fun clone of the classic game Space Invaders. It has rather slick graphics which automatically adjust to the speed of your computer to run at 30 frames per second and it prints this info to the debug window. It should be able to do 30 fps on a really slow computer. Includes sound FX too. The sprites are a bit naff because like in all my games I did all the artwork myself. Also, like many of my games, the whole thing was done in just one day. BTW, THIS REQUIRES DIRECTX 7 TO RUN. The gamplay is very fast and furious so have fun!
