One of the cool things about StarCraft II is the extremely flexible game engine, which can be modded to do practically anything beyond the game's regular real-time strategy gameplay. To help show this off, Blizzard included an arcade cabinet aboard Raynor's ship that lets you play a game with a familiar title...

"Lost Viking" puts you in control of a Viking starship in a very traditional arcade shooter. And despite being in the StarCraft II engine, it works like an arcade shooter should, complete with power-ups, screen-clearing bombs, and gigantic boss encounters.

Adam Biessener included video of the arcade game in his StarCraft II liveblog, which will continue tomorrow.
