What was HOT in 1978

Space Invaders, released in arcades by Taito in 1978, is one of the most influential and successful video games of all time, laying the foundations for most shooters and action games that followed. It revolutionized the game industry and has become a pop culture icon. When I was out last week, I popped into a fish and chipper on Colombo st and saw with my very own eyes an original space invaders game in old school cabinet. 50 cents a game and 7 dollars later I still had not managed to save the earth. Damn you aliens to hell. There were a bunch of games released during the year, check em out While playing I wondered, in 1978, what else was going on !! Well did you know it was the year Grease

Looking For Some Thing To Do

Well, plans are well under way, paper work for evacuation, food and all that jazz is about sorted so now we just need YOU! To come and play the games and have a munch.

Raiden. Play It

Now, Raiden. One of those games that I just had to keep pushing the continue button on. Over and Over and OVER because I had to make it to the end. I loved it when I would shoot and all the different weapons gave me a silly sense of bliss and a a strong case of bad language. Oh the people walking past the old arcade would have just been hearing the dirty foul mouthed cussing and wondered what was going on ! I WAS WINNING ....loosing is what was going on. Like how hard could a game like this be ??? In the year 2090, Earth has suddenly become the target of deranged aliens known as the Cranassians. Following the invasion, the World Alliance Military builds a new cutting-edge weapon, the Raiden
