Space Invaders Clone

So, here's my space invaders clone that I spent a few hours on. It's my first real go at playing around with Construct, so I thought I'd share it so people can see how I did it or suggest how I might have done some things better.

I read elsewhere in the forums that you can't export fonts with your .exe and the forum doesn't want to let me upload a .ttf file, so you can get the font I used from: http://www.fontspace.com/category/space+invaders if you want it to look right, unless the font export problem's been fixed since then?

The only thing I couldn't figure out a good way to do was the "shields". I know they're supposed to 'erode' as they get hit by bullets, but I couldn't figure out how to so they just cycle through a few frames of damage and then disappear. Any suggestions?

For the shield you could use the canvas object. Look at the example here: [url:2yurwa2l]http://www.scirra.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=971[/url:2yurwa2l]

Thanks to helpful advice from some people, now with eroding shields!

(Also particle effects, because I couldn't resist)

Cool! Very nice game. Reminded me of playing TI-Invaders back in the day.
