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.

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

Galaxy Invader 1000

One of the most recognisable electronic hand held games of its era, the game plays a very good version of Space Invaders, albeit with only three lines of aliens, it has excellent controls.

It has three skill levels via a switch, and a large fire button, and left right joystick.

Later there was a larger Galaxy 5000, which had 5 rows of aliens.

The machine was released in the UK by CGL, who also were responsible for bringing over the Sord series of computers.

Manufacturer: CGL
Date: 1980

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH50267. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
