Please help me find the title of the movie with the two following scenes I remember. I know it's not much information, but I would really like to see this movie again and I don't remember anything else about it.

The first scene I remember:
A teenager walks outside of his house to the galaga like arcade game set up outside. He plays the game and beats it. Then a space ship lands near him and the humanoid aliens tells him that anyone who beats the game is drafted into there space military.


The other scene I remember:
The teenager, who is now on the space ship, was replaced with a robot. One night, the robot takes off his head and puts it on the desk in the teenager's room to make repairs. The teenager's younger brother wakes up that same night and sees the robot making the repairs. The robot calmly tells the teenager's younger brother that he is dreaming.


Also, I remember two small scenes where the aliens are talking to the teenager in the ship's bridge and the teenager is shooting from the space ship's turret guns (not 100% sure about the turret guns).

My guess: The Last Starfighter. Classic 80's flick...
