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
The game Dojo Quest appears from the side to be placed into either a Quantum, Space Duel, Gravitar cabinet. This is interesting because during that time operators would typically take an old game and convert it into a newer game in an attempt to keep revenue being generated. See more »
Arcade games in 1982 used CRT screens, while the ones shown in the beginning have LCD screens (no curvature, no scan lines, no phosphor persistence). This was not a mistake, but a deliberate choice by the filmmakers, because CRT screens would be very difficult to film. See the Trivia section for more details. See more »

I kind liked this movie even though reminded me another movie called Ghostbusters by the format they've recorded the "war" between actors and the "enemies". The story is about video game and people from different ages can watch it without any problems on understanding old models and new models of arcades. What is most interesting is the fact the we identify great elements such as love, action, hate, the good guy, the bad guy well sizzled thru the screenplay. One thing that we really need to celebrate during this movie is the Animation and Graphics. The Crew did a great job reconstruction video game actions, scenes and real-life conflicts with the actors. I really I recommend to watch it, I'm sure will have some fun.
