Elon Musk just made huge news by announcing his plan to get our asses to Mars, but is space travel isn’t all it’s cracked up to be? That’s the impression you may get after watching Wave Arp, the video below. It’s a fun combination of smooth electronic music and Looney Toons like adventure, all served up in an 8-bit wrapper.

To celebrate the recently maligned release of Terminator: Genisys on July 1st, Netflixing Under the Influence has been taking a look at some of the less austere entries into the cyborg action genre. Much like Terminator: Genisys, today we take a look at a sequel to one of the best action films of all time. It also gives me an excuse to quickly reference this awesome side-scrolling shooter.
