Space Invaders has become an icon of popular culture, and is recognised by pretty much anyone - not just the geeks.
Awesome space invading facts:
- The release of Space Invaders in video game arcades caused a shortage of 100-yen coins in Japan.
- Space Invaders became the game to have for the Atari 2600 system, causing the system to quadruple in sales.
- Dedicated Space Invader arcades were opened in Japan after its surge in popularity, with rows of arcade machines set-up solely for playing Space Invaders.
