Ok, so maybe last week’s trip down video game memory lane was pretty dull with Pong, so how about the classic shoot-em-up game of Space Invaders? Come on, put work on hold for a few sneaky minutes to play a round or two.

Who doesn’t like Space Invaders? Surely this has to be the alpha game of all video games? Yes I know that it’s very basic but Space Invaders was the seed from which all video gaming grew. Apparently it was created back in 1978 by a Japanese guy called Tomohiro Nishikado.

So… I scored 17,690, how about you? (Play the game below.)
