Play The Last Starfighter

The Last Starfighter film stands large in the memory of my generation. Well, some of them. Those that wanted to be so good at playing an arcade game you got picked to fly a real spaceship. Awesome. And it had computer graphics! In a film!

You may have looked long and hard for that arcade machine, but it never really existed.

Until now....

Download The Last Starfighter, build a cabinet to put it in, then wait for the call to defend The Frontier from Xur and the Ko-Dan Armada. Death Blossom!

Wow! I totally loved the Last Starfighter in the Eighties! I read the book and saw the movie several times. I wanted to be that guy! Probably part of me still does.
