Game Evolution.

For this as a task from Chris we are required to find a game series which has been limited by the technology available to the developers at the time. This means that games that come out for consoles such as the Atari 2600 and their controllers or external systems use to manipulate the player/ game play.


Basically this shows how games have adapted to the controllers and game playing methods available, the Atari for example Mario was a fixed screen which did not move and there was a set map where you were required to kill certain enemies and collect drops while avoiding enemies.


In the game, Mario is portrayed as an Italian American plumber who had previously been branded as a carpenter accompanied with his younger brother Luigi, has to defeat creatures that have been coming from the sewers below New York City. The gameplay focuses on Mario’s extermination of them by flipping them on their backs and kicking them away. The original versions of Mario Bros. The arcade version and the Family Computer/ Nintendo Entertainment System version were received positively.
