Changing Technology

Contributed by Redhill Primary Telford

My object used to be the most popular game in the 70's.It is my dad's old space invaders game and it would of been everybodys favourite computer game.It was invented by Toshihiro Nishikado from Tatio,Japan.It is
generated by batteries and has 2 different modes.One mode is like the normal space invaders and the other mode is called block buster,you have to try and hit the red lights that come on to the screen with 20 balls in stock and you can bounce the ball with a platform on the bottom of the screen.Space Invaders has been around for a long time and it is now an old time classic and still enjoyed by lots of people in the world even though it has been around 32 years.Now modern technology has advanced from single games to different game packs or one game pack to a whole variety.Maybe in the future there might be a new type of technology and the new games now will be rubbish compared to the next advanced technology.
