Released in 1978 and grossing $2 billion worldwide by 1982, Space Invaders was the template for gaming to come, including interactive features and giving rise to stony-faced, addictive play that has left homework undone for generations. So addictive, in fact, it caused a temporary shortage of 100-yen coins in Japan when it was first introduced. Space Invaders was also first to save the player's points on a high-score leader board. For those of you who missed the cut and adopted a sour grapes attitude as consolation, this arcade replica heals the hurt with .6 ounces of sour apple candies, emblazoned with an image of the first wave of invading spacecraft. Keep the collectible tin as a memento of past wasted years, or refill it with whatever you like.
