Rogue Synapse Unleashes 'The Last Starfighter' PC Game For Free

I know the damn kids out there won’t care, but the fact that Rogue Synapse Released ‘The Last Starfighter’ PC Game For Free Download made my day. I still love the movie even though the special effects haven’t held up at all over the years. I still wish I could join the Starfighters…

The plot of The Last Starfighter revolved around a space-set first-person shooter arcade game used to recruit warriors from all over the galaxy for a real interstellar war. The graphics for Rogue Synapse’s Starfighter back in 2006 are based on those of the film’s and the game’s creators have even gone to great lengths to replicate the feel of an authentic 1980s arcade game, right down to the fonts. An 8-bit version of the film’s main title theme composed by Craig Safan and actual Starfighter game audio from the film enhance this amazing retro experience.

You can download the game for free here.
