Last Mission is a top-down multidirectional shooter developed by Data East and distributed in world wide release for the arcades in 1986.

The player assumes the role of an space pilot who has been exiled from their home galaxy for committing an unknown crime. The only way the player character can return is to restore their honor - and the only way to do so is to invade and defeat the alien nemesis.
