A micro game with Color LED matrix where the pixels used for the entire game are about those of a single sprite of the original invader.

I really like old video games, and I had never found a space invader style game on Arduino that used Dot matrix LED display. One day seeing one of these displays I said to myself: I could make a space invader in a space approximately equal to what was originally occupied by a single sprite of an invader. It would be great.

I got started and tried it, and in spite of all the limitations I managed to do something playable and at the same time fascinating considering the limits of the hardware.As you can see on the title is named Space Hinvaders, because is a Survival Hacking (SH) creation, so altered original Space Invader name according to SH Initials.

This is an enacted version, that’s add a color WS2812 RGB dot matrix display to the original project based on MAX7219 Red LED dot matrix display.”
