Blast from the 80s – Arcade Attack

I found Arcade Attack, a short film that is half documentary and all awesome, hypnotically compelling as a kid. Geoff Harvey and Stephen Highfield show off their gaming skills and then the characters of pinball and the late 1970s video game world come alive and fight an epic battle. I am not sure what channel used to show this, but I am very glad I was exposed to this as a kid.

One thought on “Blast from the 80s – Arcade Attack

  1. Good find. That was an enlightening look at early 80s amusement culture in the UK (strangely enough) that ended up just turning into a totally bonkers action cartoon. wtf.
