Storyline

"Space Invaders" became one of the first coin-op video arcade games to enjoy mega-success worldwide. Teen-agers and college students spent hours at the local arcade (or wherever one of the game machines was placed) using a single laser base trying to defeat an army of alien creatures who marched from side to side in grid-like formation, slowly but perilously approaching Earth. In 1980, Atari released a home version of the wildly popular arcade game for its popular home video game system. The format of the game was identical, this time with the laser base defending Earth against 36 of the alien creatures (arranged in a 6-by-6 formation). As in the arcade game, the object was to defeat the aliens before they reached Earth (with the aliens speeding up as they become fewer in number); allowing even one alien to land on the bottom row automatically ended the game, while losing three laser bases also meant the game over.

Trivia

When Space Invaders was released in Japan in 1978, it was an instant hit among the Japanese public. Practically the whole country was obsessed with the game, there were even reports of youths committing robberies just to play it. The machines ran on 100-Yen coins, and people plunked down enough of them to cause a nationwide shortage of 100-Yen coins. The government eventually produced four times the normal amount of 100-Yen coins in order to keep up with the Space Invaders craze. See more »

The best creation of Tomohiro Nishikado

Space Invaders was created by the recently hired programmer Tomohiro Nishikado, who worked in the Taito game factory. His boss said only: " Make a game that would be the best". Nishikado was with no ideas, then he go watch a sort of Star Wars in the same day. Then he said that the game would be a space combat game between a giant army of aliens and a human Starship. Then he go to an Aquarium and saw all types of octopus, squids, and then he said that the aliens of the game would be like squids. And then Space Invaders was born. Is the best NES game I have.
