Space Invaders was originally launched back in 1978 and created by Taito, and was the very first arcade game I ever played. The game has been inspiration for many other video games released on a wide variety of different platforms and also led to a number of sequels. The 1980 Atari 2600 version of Space Invaders quadrupled the system’s sales and became the first “killer app” for video game consoles to be recorded. A real classic game that must be played.
