Sam has been one of the best arcade gamers of his time. Once in an international tournament NASA sent the video recording of all the games to space for intelligent beings to find and know more about humans. However the aliens interpreted the games as a challenge and began attacking Earth using the video game data. It's now up to Sam and other old time arcade game champions to save the Earth from the video game alien invasion.Written by
Several of the game figures that the aliens use for their patterns are from games released after 1982, such as Tetris, Arkanoid, and Paperboy. However, it is never claimed that the probe was launched in 1982, only that it included footage from that year. It could've been launched years later and included footage from later years too. Long delays aren't that rare in NASA. Also, the aliens could've updated their data by picking up Earth transmissions after the probe got their attention. See more »

Instead of "The End," it says, "Game Over" at the film's conclusion. See more »
I want to start off by saying that, I have never reviewed a movie before. I felt compelled to do so due to the bad rep this movie appears to be receiving. The bottom line is it was comical and entertaining. The idea though ridiculous, was at least fresh to all the movies being produced today appearing to be recycled from other movies. It kind of reminds me of the original Hot Tub Machine movie that was unexpectedly a fresh idea and was entertaining. Like that movie , there were parts of this movie that were just plain funny and amusing. The movie theater I was in most people laughed multiple times, I can not remember another movie (recently) where the majority of the moviegoers were noticeably laughing. I enjoyed the movie for a new idea and found it to be entertaining. Isn't that what a movie is suppose to be?
