Fingerless day-glo gloves. Betamax. Flashdance. Frankie says. Yes siree, the Eighties have got plenty to answer for. And let’s not even mention all that pocket money you squandered on arcade games. Dum, dum, dum, dum.
A very addictive Invaders style game
Thankfully your one-time financial nemesis is about to become your fiscal saviour because the brilliant Arcade Machine Money Box will swallow your shrapnel for all the right reasons. Simply deposit a coin and prepare to be amazed as this retro-tastic machine comes to life, allowing you to play a thumb-blisteringly addictive invaders-style game for two minutes.
When only thirty seconds of thrilling dodging and shooting remain, an alarm sounds – insert another coin or it’s game over. Aargh! If only real banks offered such a compelling incentive to deposit cash. Crummy interest rates? Pah!
No need to smash it with a hammer!
Put this evocative 15cm cabinet on a desk or shelf and we guarantee the memories will come flooding back – high scores, blippity-blop music, the smell of burning retinas, the incessant clattering of coins. Mum, lend us 10p!
Sadly this particular cabinet is a bit too small to side-slap in frustration, and it’s battery operated so you can’t unplug it from the mains when you’re about to lose (or was that just us?). On the plus side the thought of blasting blocky aliens should provide sufficient motivation for all you old-school vidiots to save a considerable pile of wonga. Then in true Eighties style you can go and blow the lot down the arcade. It’s like the last thirty years never happened. Game (and short term financial crisis) over!
It even has a retro style box
