NEWS// FLASHINVADERS APP RELEASED

Big news time! Space Invader recently released his ‘FlashInvaders‘ app on iOS and Android.

The app sees fans from around the world hunting for Invader mosaics and gaining points depending on which pieces they find. Each mosaic has an individual score allocated to it and photos or ‘Flashes’ are authenticated via your phones GPS. We nipped out to London last weekend to test the app. We managed 13 pieces, which saw us climb to a meagre 182nd place on the leaderboard.

We’re sure you’ve already downloaded the app. Let us know how you get on – Good luck!

PICTURES// INVADER IN TOKYO II

As we mentioned last week – Space Invader has been hitting Tokyo hard with a load of fresh new pieces going up in the Japanese capital. There are some really great pieces cropping up, including original Invaders and tiled versions of Japanese cult icons like Astroboy, Doraemon, Hello Kitty and Grendizer. It’s also been reported by Invader himself that a mini Mona Lisa piece has already disappeared, we’re hoping that’s not a sign of things to come.

Here are some of our favourites from Tokyo so far. Huge thanks to ekkun for providing us with the photos.
