Arcade Attack

I discovered this on cable in 1982, as one of those shorts that HBO used to play between movies. Being a seventh-grader who read Heavy Metal magazine and spent every weekend in arcades and pinball palaces around the north side of Chicago, it was of course the most awesome thing I'd ever seen. I told friends about it, and none of them knew what I was talking about.

Seeing it now for the first time in 27 years, it's still pretty rad. And much better than Tron.
