Make and Play Color Invaders!

From instructables user JColvin91:

Hello!

This is a fun little project that I was recently inspired to try out by Hamster’s own Colour Invaders project.

As the name suggests, it is similar in design to the classic Space Invaders game or (more similarly) the Casio’s Number Invaders on the calculator. The idea behind the game is that different colored invaders start marching down the LED strip and you have to fire missiles that match the color of the oncoming invader.

Naturally, as you successfully destroy more of the invaders, the faster they come towards your base. Luckily, we do get a nice bonus if we successfully destroy enough invaders in a row… 🙂

Can you survive the onslaught against the color invaders?
