A big thanks to fellow Retroist fan and writer, Doug, for the heads up on this Data East arcade game from back in 1986 entitled Last Mission. This is an arcade game that I sadly didn’t get a chance to play in my youth…much less know of it’s existence. A big thanks of course to not only Doug but to the Arcade Flyer Archive for the scanned flyer below.
Thanks to Wikipedia:
“The players assume the role of an alien-humanoid space pilot who has been exiled from their home galaxy for committing an unlearned crime. The only way the player character can return is to restore their honor; the only way to do so is to invade and defeat the alien invaders who have been known to frequently attack the player character’s people using a ship called the Main Fighter.”
Thanks to Data East Gamer for uploading this video of the gameplay over on YouTube!
