Space Invaders

Space Invaders - A simple game with simple graphic which we crazed during our childhood/teenage time. One key feature of Space Invaders was that as more and more aliens were shot, the remaining aliens will move faster and faster. And one interesting fact is, some of the aliens resemble Sotong (aka Octopus). LOL

Yeah, I played the nostalgic game once again few weeks back. Pac Man and Space Invaders were the first few video games we played in the past (in the 80's). Reminiscing the good old times - playing the Space Invaders for hours using Atari video arcade games in my cousin's house or occasionally with the IBM PC with green colored monochrome monitors in school.

Simple American said...

Oh come on. You are too young to play those in the 80s. :P

Of course it is sotong. And if you ever win the game and kill them all then you get free calamari. So far no one has done that.

The computers are not for all the students, just for those who are members of hte Computer Club. I joined the Computer Club in my school mah.. Paying club fee RM 5 per month leh.. And we get to use the computer once a week. Those IBM PC loh with green coloured monochrome monitor. No Windows or color monitor yet :P

And I was the honourable treasurer of the Computer Club too ;)

said...

an old game.. but nice.. and yes, that looks like a sotong.. PAC man.. wow.. i couldnt play it for long, i'll scream and die

Chen said...

,
it's more kan cheong to play Pac Man, as have to be alert and fast with the joystick, to avoid eaten by the ghost.. LOLOL. If playing with keyboard, then even more kan cheong :D

mistipurple said...

you woke Sotong up to play this game again ah? o.O

Kok said...

chen,
Where got sotong? It's jellyfish lah! hahaha!

I also like those games when I was small. Can play for the whole day and no need eat, no need sleep. Those were the days...

plink said...

If we let PacMan play with the Space Invaders maybe he can eat sotong until kenyang?

Giddy Tiger said...

I blogged about this game sometime back too. Did you know you can play it online? Free?
Imagine, you can even play it in your clinic while waiting for patients!

mudpie said...

hahahhah i love that game too .. i always fight with my brother (coz we share)

Chen said...

misti,
Hhahaha... cannot wake Sotong up, cos in this game we are supposed to shoot the sotong. Later Sotong mengamuk then cham liao.. :P

kok,
might be it's a mixture of Sotong & Jellyfish then. Abuthen, calling it as Sotong is more meaningful ;)

Nowadays we don't have the stamina to play computer games the whole day.. Hahaha, signs of ageing? :D

plink,
Kkakakakak... imaging Pac Man chasing after the running Sotong!
LOLOL

Chen said...

giddy tigers,
Ooh.. after u mentioned it, now i remember.. getting old liao mah :P

I downloaded the game online too. Yeah, it's free. (Free stuff are good stuff). LOL

Abuthen, I won't play it in the clinic lah. I have a pda, if I wanted to play games, I will play the games on my pda, such as Bejeweled 2, Chuzzles, FruitFolic, Cubis, Domino etc :D

mudpie,
Hahhaha, fighting pulak.
Siapa menang? :D
Those innocent carefree days ;)

Doreen said...

Talking about main masak-masak, I still have the "plastic" fake food items which I kept during my childhood time (inside the store room) - got sentimental value mah. But after my family shifted house in end of 2004...

Everything gone liao... :(
