None of the download links work. I was hoping to check it out.

Okay 1.2 released! That's probably my final release.

Thanks! Yeah I know the sound's a little to loud...well, maybe WAY to loud. ;-) In the next release I'll "tune" it down. I'll fix those two sound files too. Thanks alot for the feedback! I really appreciate it! Take a look at my other games that I posted as well. I'm a new user and I'm still learning about the website.
Cool shields! Just like the original, I think. There are still two sound files which don't get found without changes: "Shoot.wav" and "Alien Shoot.wav" which I found and made lower-case in the program. It might be nice to have a global volume control, too: otherwise I'll be waking up the neighbours. ;-)

Version 1.1 released! Please tell me if you have any problems.

Okay thanks, I'll fix the problem with the filenames. Okay I thought that's what you meant about the shields but I wasn't sure. I was figuring on having those in the next release.
So for the next release:
-Fix the filenames
-Add defensive shields
-Add Windows Executable

The "spellings" are different in the program: it looks for "Shoot.wav", "Alien Shoot.wav", "Superhelio Regular.ttf", "InvaderKilled.wav" and "intro.wav", but the files are respectively called "shoot.wav", "alien shoot.wav", "Superhelio Regular.TTF", "invaderkilled.wav" and "Intro.wav". Just do a search and replace in the program (like I did) or rename the files and it'll work fine.
The shields are a number of defensive blocks just above the player which are progressively destroyed by player and alien missiles, so the player can shoot through them, but they are probably best used as defences against alien missiles. See the Wikipedia page for a screenshot depicting the shields:

Thanks for the feedback! What kind of changes do I need to do to the filenames? And I'm not sure what you mean by "shields"...
The game is presented in a rather authentic way, although I'd like to see the shields that you get on the original (or maybe variants of the original). Some changes are needed to the filenames to get the game to work on UNIX-like case-sensitive filesystems: some of the sound and font filenames in the archive don't match up with the names used in the program. It seems like a nice game, though.
