Space Invaders is a Japanese shooting video game released in 1978 by Taito. It was developed by Tomohiro Nishikado. The game was so amazingly popular in Japan that it caused a coin shortage until the country's Yen supply was quadrupled. Entire arcades were opened in Japan specifically for this game.
Space Invaders was released for the Atari 2600 home console in 1980 and became its first "killer app", helping Atari to sell millions of units.
