Web Invaders screenshot.

In Web Invaders, the player controls a rocket ship at the bottom of the screen that faces waves of flying saucers overhead that move from side to side and fire downwards. Getting hit by a bomb will cost the player a life and the game will end when there are no more lives in reserve. However, the player will earn an extra life with every wave completed, along with a "perfect" bonus if they are able to clear out a wave of enemies without losing a life.

After the player inputs their name, the game will start out with only a few enemy saucers, which then multiply with every cleared wave until they reach a maximum of 24 onscreen saucers at once.

The game was developed and published by in 2012 for Chrome devices.

  • Unlike most Space Invaders games in general that has barriers at the screen edges where the player’s ship cannot move any further, on Web Invaders, their ship can wrap around to the other side (i. e. if the player’s ship moves past the right side of the screen it will reappear on the left side).
  • As of 2016, the game still appears to be unfinished, as its full name is Web Invaders 0.5, although the game has no sound, there’s no death animation for when the player gets hit by a bomb, once it reaches the maximum of 24 invaders onscreen it never gets any harder, plus there’s still a bug where if the player pauses the game, after they unpause it there’s still an onscreen prompt telling them to press P to continue, which those words stay up until that level is completed.
