    Can anyone help me about where should i start when i am creating a space invader game in fpga? I know that I should generate pixels on screen but how can I do it by using verilog?

    You should start with displaying something on the display I am sure you already have. After you are able to set a pixel you want, go and google some space invaders code and find out how it works. Then convert the functionality to verilog.

    675 has an example of putting Pong on a VGA display using a FPGA, so that could be a good resource for you to use to display on the screen as well as how to do the game loop.

    I think that the easiest way to do it is to emulate an 8080 microprocessor and execute the actual Space Invader program. ;)
    absf and kubeek like this.
