Space Invaders

Classic arcade game Space Invaders written in Ruby w/ Gosu.


Getting Started

The game is packed as a gem, so you can simply run:

$ gem install space_invaders
$ space-invaders

Or you can clone the repo and simply run the main file:

$ git clone [email protected]:DamirSvrtan/space-invaders.rb.git
$ ruby go.rb

Troubles during installation:

If you have problems installing the game, you're probably missing some OS specific libraries that Gosu uses. For further information checkout:
