The screenshots look nice, so I might concider packaging it, but:
-the name "space invaders" is a know for an already existing and well
  known game and thus cannot be used legally please come up with a new
-their is no license on the code nor on the images, please add a License
  under which people can (re)distribute and use your code and images,
  this license must of course meet Fedora's guidelines.
-I didn't try the game yet, but I saw no sound files, so I assume there
  is no sound. Pretty graphics is good, but a game without sound is not
  complete, and thus I won't package it.

Thanks & Regards,
