Top Gun NES 1987 – Titles – 8 bit Top Gun Anthem – Retron 5 Enhanced

If you were a child of the 80s and/or 90s and you had consoles or played computer games, chances are that you had more than a few movie cash-in game. They often had little to do with the game or the plot and many times would have none of the music and few of the characters. Top Gun squarely focused on aerial combat, which, compared to landing, was the easy part of the game!

Top Gun 1987 for the Nintendo Entertainment Sydstem prominently features the classic track from the film, the Top Gun Anthem. Which is really a great excuse to post this video of the games title screen, featuring the tune immortalized in 8-bit glory.
