Invader invader = invaders[i];
The above code. Left side of equation is creating a variable named invader from an Invader class. That is cool I understand that. However, how can an instance of the Invader class become an array? (the right side of the equation). The invader class doesn't have an array field or anything. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! =)

Assuming that line comes from working code, the "invaders" (plural) array must have already been created and populated with instances of the "Invader" class. This line just assigns a new variable with a reference to one of them.
If you have trouble finding where that array is created, you could make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here to facilitate more specific help.
