JavaFX: Space Invaders in less than 175 LOC

With the current version of the API I’m at less than 175 LOC for Space Invaders. I’ve got lot’s of “Functional Interfaces” in my APIs that can be converted to Lambda Expressions with JavaFX 8( e.g. SpriteProvider and CollisionHandler). That will make the code nicer and shorter. I could probably also reduce the linecount by bundling the recources (e.g. TileSets) and creating more factories and Builders (SpriteBuilder). But I’m getting closer to what I want…
