In the 1982 movie Tron, a made-up game called Space Paranoids was briefly featured:

As part of the advertising campaign for the upcoming sequel, Tron: Legacy, a real Space Paranoids game was made.  You can play it at

It’s a pretty simple game.  You move your tank around a maze in a first-person perspective, shooting at “recognizers” before they can crush you.  The controls are interesting in that the turret moves independently of the tank.

All in all, a neat little game!
