Last Mission is a top-down multidirectional shooter developed by Data East and distributed in worldwide release for the arcades in 1986.
The game is similar to Time Pilot as players have full movement control over their ship and can move it in all eight directions.
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.
The game is a classic arcade shooter with a simple premise and gameplay.
The graphics and sound are typical of the era, with bright colors and simple sound effects.
The game is challenging, with increasing difficulty levels as the player progresses.
The game received mixed reviews, with some praising the gameplay and others criticizing the lack of depth.
Overall, Last Mission is a fun and challenging arcade shooter that is worth playing for fans of the genre. However, it may not be for everyone due to its simplicity and lack of depth.
