As everyone knows by now, the upcoming X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, takes place in the 1980s. (You can tell because the trailer has Jennifer Lawrence with Kim Basinger hair and James McAvoy rocking a Miami Vice T-shirt/blazer combo. Also, it features Jubilee, the most ’80s X-Person of all.)

To get audiences in a real ’80s frame of mind leading up to the release, 20th Century Fox has made the Spaceport Arcade, a site full of mutant themed 8-bit games for you to play. There’s Mutant Conquest, which is essentially Pac-Man; Revenge Of Hero X, which features a character who looks a lot like Cable; and Mutant Track & Field, which is basically Summer Games, except some of the characters have a distinct advantage.


Like all ’80s games, everything in the Spaceport Arcade is both deceptively hard and inexplicably addictive. So, good luck getting anything done for the rest of the day.
