"Arcade Legends" (街机传奇)

There’s  no big apocalypse. Just an endless procession of little ones. - Neil Gaiman
American rock band R.E.M. said it first, “it’s the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)”. Space debris comes flying down from the dark skies, ricocheting off skyscrapers, roofs, and towers like a trivial game of pinball. It’s an invasion of epic proportions! Just like the Kessler effect, a theoretical scenario which explains a cascading collision of space debris, Space Invaders descend upon Nanjing Lu (南京路) row after row after row! An endless loop! Laser beams shoot from above creating a striking performance of explosions and bangs. Flashes of light fill the heavens like scattered stars (星罗棋布). As the chengyu suggests, spread all over the place like chess pieces on a board. GAME OVER!
It’s the end of the world and what else can I say? I do feel fine.
