Description:The title game is actually a test for prospective
starship pilots, planted by embattled aliens under siege from an evil invader.
When a restless teenager (Lance Guest) racks up an impressive score, he finds
himself spirited away to the besieged planet and thrust into the midst of an
intergalactic war. —
fantasy come true: juvenile with a high-score on a video arcade
game at the local shop gets recruited by a bunch of aliens to
commandeer a real starship and defend their planet against invaders.
Children will love this stuff
even though some of the computer-generated effects at the climactic battle
scenes aren't all that hot even by the standards of its time.
