Remember shoving hundreds of dollars in quarters into the R-Type video game machine back in the ’80s? Yeah, good times blowing up the aliens while leveling up your ship with powerful new weapons. Now, Paul Johnson has taken his love for R-Type and turned it into an animated short.

Back in the day, my friend Mike and I would drive 10 miles to the Wal-mart in the next town over just to blow a roll of quarters on this game. Brings back memories. Even today, I’m the lookout for updates to this game, or companies that have ported it to their system.
