Space Invaders


When I was about 9 maybe 10 years old

At the local fast food joint

at the island

they had a arcade machine

with space invaders on it

mostly at sunset we would go there

it just drew me into it

from that day onward gaming was a part of me



Space Invaders is a 1978 arcade game created by Tomohiro Nishikado. Space Invaders was the first fixed shooter and set the template for the shoot ’em up genre. The goal is to defeat wave after wave of descending aliens with a horizontally moving laser to earn as many points as possible.
