If you can steel yourself for a post-modern jumble of space exploration and robotic sing-song, Upside Down Cake's "Star Strike" offers a neat walk through Atari antiquity. Some of these games certainly deserve the homage.

Fun facts about a few of these games: Space Invaders caused an actual coin shortage in Japan, Berzerk was the first game implicated in the death of its players.
