11 REAL WORLD 11

A video game called "BERSERK," in which a human character'

throws a glowing dot at monsters in a maze; we see a quick

glimpse of the screen, then cut to a group of people staring

down, LAUGHING.

12 OMITTED12

13 ELECTRONIC WORLD13

Another game in progress, from a LONG SHOT. A version of

Jai Alai, in which the two players stand suspended in space

on glowing colored rings, and throw a pellet of solid energy

at each other.

14 ANGLE ON ONE OF THE WARRIORS 14

He is huge, evil looking. His body is enormous, his head

mechanical. This is SARK. He glows ominously blue. He is catching

the pellet thrown from his opponent who is much smaller, glowing

yellow.

15 CLOSE UP - FACE OF THE OPPONENT15

fearful, nervous, poised on one ring.

16 SARK 16

sneering, as he uses his electronic cesta to hurl the pellet

back with violent force.

16A THE SMALLER WARRIOR 16A

desperately trying to catch the pellet, but it smashes

into the ring, which explodes into a million pieces. One

last glimpse of the yellow warrior's tortured, desperate

face as he falls to instant death.

17 SARK 17

triumphant, LAUGHING. High above him, etched in enormous

glowing computer printed 3-D block letters, are the words:

"WINNER:
BLUE - SARK!!"

BOY'S VOICE

(distant, echoing)

Aagh! God, Lisa, I almost had you that

time.

DISSOLVE TO:

18 REAL WORLD - THE VIDEO ARCADE 18

We see two TEENAGERS playing a table model video game, where we

can see the words: "Winner - Blue" printed. The game console is

prominently marked with the letter logo of the manufacturer: "ICOM."

BOY:

Lemme play you again?

TEENAGE GIRL:
