Best way to store objects in grid? (Space invaders)

P: n/a
Hi all, I am just playing around with writing a simple space invaders game
and was wondering what was the best way to store the layout of the "aliens".

I am currently using a multi-dimensional array to store all the "invader"
objects..

invaders [5,3]

Which stores 15 invader objects (5 across, three down). When I want to
display the "aliens", or figure out which alien has been "shot", I simply
recurse through the array and display all the objects. This works fine but I
was wondering if anyone had any better ideas?

Cheers
Mark
