Ah Space Invaders, I have a love/hate relationship with Space Invaders (or ‘Invaders From Space’ as some unscrupulous business operators called their knock off machines in an attempt to avoid paying royalties all those years ago). Space Invaders, and the machine operator, loved my 10p pieces, and I hated the game. Not at the time, but in retrospect I hated it.
It was never ending (like Nazi Zombies) and a little unnerving, especially when you got to the last little sod who wouldn’t die and then he’d munch your space ship with alien glee.
