Space Invaders reminds me of The Fox & Hounds, West Croydon. When we were team of the 80s, top of the whole league, after the games, train to West Croydon, wait til 5.30 opening time at the pub, then in for Space Invaders and start the process that led up to midnight vomiting.

For serious retro-gaming you need http://www.mame.net - hardware emulation of almost 2000 arcade games, download the actual ROM images from the original arcade cabinets and away you go! Beware though if you are just a casual observer... it is a bit fiddly to download and setup the emulator and roms etc.

Can't remember what it was called, but it was on the left. Had my first curry there too, in 1965 :clown:

Yeah thats the one I was using!!! This is taken rom their home page:

The roms of [mame.dk] was removed 3 days ago. [mame.dk] has received a notice from a copyright holder forcing us to shut down our service.

We are sorry for keeping you in the dark for a few days, but we used the weekend to discuss how to handle this sad incident, trying to develop new ideas on how to provide our old service. The conclusion is unfortunatly: no rom downloads.

[mame.dk] is a hobby project, and we do not want to put our personal economy in jeopardy on this, and we do NOT want to go into legal matters. The [mame.dk] project has grown rather large lately, and despite many and generous donations, we had to throw in the banners to pay for bandwidth costs at the last release. So maybe we just got too popular.

We will continue to provide the database services at [mame.dk], as well as the supporting files (emulator mirror, screenshots, artwork, samples etc.), and we will consider adding new "features" to the system.

Kind regards, the [mame.dk] team
Bombjack, Mr.Do and DigDug
