Storyline

On a quiet morning in New York, strange things begin to happen next to a Brooklyn trash can, as waves of early arcade characters from old-fashioned coin-operated machines invade the city, taking everyone by surprise. Donkey Kong climbs the town's towers, while Pac-Man's appetite is insatiable and Tetris obliterates entire buildings. Is there a way out from this pixelated terror? Written by Nick Riganas
