Happy 30th Space Invaders

Image of Space Invaders in Colour - on a 1979 Taito Cocktail machine. Space Invaders was released 30 years ago this month in Japan, and changed the world a little bit for ever. 1up.com have posted a "Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Space Invaders" in tribute.

By the way, using 4Noah and MAME, it's possible to play a perfect version of Space Invaders on your PC using one-switch. With MAME cheats installed you can switch off the aliens shooting at you, and set your base to fire automatically. It changes the game, but it's still a lot of fun, and accessible for some where before it wasn't.
