Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Ikari Warriors

Originally an arcade game, Ikari Warriors is a vertically scrolling shooter for one or two players that was ported to various platforms between 1986 and 1989. 

Players must use their primary weapons, power-ups and controllable vehicles to defeat wave after wave of enemy soldiers, tanks and helicopters.

The game takes inspiration from the culture of its time, most notably 1980s action movies. The game’s title “Ikari” even comes from the Japanese title of the film Rambo: First Blood Part 2 with the game also sharing a similar jungle setting.

Ikari Warriors has many links to other video games. The player characters, known in Europe and North America as Paul and Vince, have appeared in the King of Fighters series and even in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate as non-player characters.
