- If you're old enough to recall feverishly shovelling handfuls of pocket change into ever-willing coin-op arcade machines (perhaps you're sporting one or two grey hairs about the temples), then this little handy tool of distraction is likely to pull mightily on your memories as well as your purse strings.
There are scant few arcade games scattered throughout gaming history that can truly rival the likes of Taito's classic Space Invaders, which pitted players against a never-ending horde of advancing aliens while arming them a puny spaceship lacking in shielding and equipped with only a single static weapon. Difficult, unforgiving, and endlessly addictive? Rather.
So, for those old-skool gamers looking to relive the past without pouring their college funds into a coin slot, there is this, the Space Invaders Mini Arcade Keychain from Excalibur Electronics. While it may be gimmicky in the extreme and a blatant cash in on the endearing popularity of a genuine gaming great, this baby is guaranteed to cut down the monotony of bus and train journeys whilst also keeping your house and car keys company when you're busy with the rest of the day's activities.
Arriving with a full colour display screen, endless waves of alien action can be yours for a mere $15 USD - just don't leave it hanging conspicuously from your belt loop while attempting to impress a member of the opposite sex. Be warned, but happy.
