bleh. Bubblygum...you ust not have played the whole thing. It`s too long, and boring...Though I think heck, if whoever made this enjoyed making it, than it`s as worthy as any other hobby.

I`m guessing that those of you who didn`t care for the animation probably would be bored with the original Space Invaders game as well. You have to remember that this is an homage to a different era. An era when video games were in their earliest stages. The concept of the animation was original and the execution was top-notch. To those of you who utter "Photoshopped" to everything they see... I feel sad for your jaded cynicism. Critical thinking allows us to discriminate between genuine and corrupted works. The fact is that it would take longer to fabricate the work in Photoshop than to actually animate the sequence with real people.

This was really creative. It would have been cool if the 2nd time the last invader came down really fast and ended the game. Then they could have made game over...i like this one

Why has no one corrected "bomoman"??!!

Anyone who`s played that classic knows you could give up a ship as a capture and then get it back..giving you TWO firing points....

Hey, does anyone notice that most of these post are from stumble? It was on IAB like a month ago, then all of the sudden, sites started popping up that (if you use stumble) you could tell were from it. That is all.

What? It was real! They took a bunch of pictures of people sitting in a theater.

It wasn`t entertaining really but appreciate the effort they put in.

The second level was the same as the first. I would have liked it if they left one alien there and have it coming after you really fast, like in the real game.

A bit too long, but still amazing. I can`t even imagine how long that must have taken to do. Stop motion Pong would have been so much easier, dont you think? LOL

Oh, and.. Could you imagine how much it would suck to be the person/people that were the shots? Having to move every frame back another row...

And did anyone else notice in the beginning when the big monster thing [sorry, never played original Space Invaders but have played knockoffs], the people moved their legs alternately? Like one frame, everyone`s legs would be in, the next they would be out. I think that was rather clever....

That was amazing. And French people did it too! [Credits are in French.] That makes me very happy. =D (Not only am I part French, but I take and love the language.)

Now I`m going to have to show this to my friends and prove to them the French *aren`t* stupid..

i thought that was very cool. it`s extremely creative, although i`d probably have to agree that it was a little drawn out, it must`ve been hellish for the people who had to sit there for every shot..."ok, now move two seats to the left. ok, now back one row. now another. now another..."

"What do you mean "It`d be cool if it was real" mynameismike? It is real, your just stupid."

You guys at i-am-bored ar really eloquent.

I just don`t buy the lightining/colour/brightness/resolution differences between the theater and the people.

How can people on here say "Wow this sucks".

Do you have ANY idea how long it would take to do that? Every frame involved someone moving around the theatre.

What do you mean "It`d be cool if it was real" mynameismike? It is real, your just stupid.
