A timeless Arcade Gaming Classic

A timeless Arcade Gaming Classic

According to the gaming community, Space Invaders was the first game in the history of shoot-em-ups to feature a fixed shooter. It is considered a classic because of its ageless and addictive arcade gameplay, in which players wield a laser to shoot descending aliens. The goal is to complete each level and advance through the game's three levels of difficulty. Players have a total of three lives, and the game includes obstacles like buildings for shelter and varying point values for alien rows. The first two rows are larger and worth ten points each, the middle two are worth twenty points, and the top row is worth thirty points, for a total of 990 points per screen.

If you are a masive Space Invaders fan, you can upgrade the arcade experience with Space Invaders Frenzy, which is a modern take on the original game with two seats, mounted guns, and a gigantic 118" screen for solo or multiplayer play. Standing at 305cm tall, this machine reimagines Space Invaders for a new generation.

Space Invaders was designed by Toshiro Nishikado. Nishikado's creativity is reflected in his creation of a custom microprocessor from discrete logic chips without the assistance of a hardware designer, which he accomplished in November 1974. Taito released the game in 1978, and it was an immediate success. Its journey began on May 15, 1978, in Japan, where is success led to a coin shortage and resulted in an increase in production of the 100-yen coin. It eventually spread to Europe and the United States, where it became even more popular and a cultural phenomenon. In America, fans were so hooked that they would take days off work to play Space Invaders at local arcades, cementing its place in the hearts of gamers.
