The purpose of this site is to document as much information on the little known Space Invaders rip off, IPM Invader. For those who are not aware of IPM Invader, it is the game that has a 'coffee break' after every 3 waves of invaders. This has always fascinated me and I enjoyed reaching the 'coffee break' when I was young.
