Is there a good Space Invaders game for linux?


Does anyone know of a good space invaders game for linux?

what i am looking for is space invaders game that:

1. Has full source code available, and is ideally written using C++ or C++ based library and:

2. Plays in 'full-screen' mode, like eg powermanga does. Or even is able to play only on the linux console, but with decent 2 D graphics. i seen ncurses invaders , but i am looking for real graphics!

I just want to know if any such game exists for linux, there seem to be a ton of them for windows.

You can check retrovaders, but it's written in Pascal.

As the author of RetroVaders I'd just like to correct one small detail: It's not written in Pascal, but in BlitzMax, which is a rather nice Basic variant which first appeared on the Amiga.
