The Last Starfighter (NES)
|The Last Starfighter|
The Last Starfighter is a NES game loosely based on the movie of the same name. The game is a port of Uridium (C64) which itself is based off of Shadow Spotter (2600). Though the game was originally designed by UK-based Graftgold, it was ported to the NES by the ghost developer Eastridge Technology and programmed by its operator, Nick Eastridge.
The game has 15 levels. In each level, you must shoot a certain amount of enemies and then land on the landing pad when the game tells you to do so.
The game uses a song from the movie soundtrack, The Hero's March. Rich Shemaria had to transcribe the song by ear, before sending sheet music of his arrangement to Nick Eastridge, who coded it into the game by hand. To help Nick in implementing the music into his sound driver, Rich wrote the pitch equates for Nick's driver under the notation in the sheet music.
