The Last (And First) Starfighter Arcade Game
Anyone who watched the movie, “The Last Starfighter,” probably wondered if they’d ever be whisked away to save the galaxy from an evil alien race with their mad gaming skills. Me, I anxiously awaited the day when a race of semi-intelligent frogs would call on me to lead them through the perils of highway traffic and bobbing crocodiles. Unfortunately, despite the possibility of being one of the greatest movie tie-ins ever, an actual “Starfighter” arcade machine was never produced. Thankfully, Rogue Synapse decided to take things into their own hands and constructed their own fully functional Starfighter arcade machine, modeled after the one in the film. The machine plays a fan-made version of the game, also available for download, which looks just like the one in the movie. If you’re interested in building you’re own version of the game, you can check out the site below for diagrams and such.
