Font from the arcade game Afterburner.

It's a faux-drop-shadow font because the original characters had shadows.  Kind of weird but it's better than no shadow.  Limited character set as that's all that was in the game.

@Omegaville - Ah, the old problem that we Video Game Font rescuers run into from time to time.  You might try making a 'faux drop shadow' by making a smaller pattern for the shadow -- using alternating blocks or some other brick pattern.  The result might not be a "true" pixel font, but it would be a better representation of what's displayed on the screen.  Here's one I did about 5 years ago: Monkey Island 2 Menu

Hi Goatmeal, I did consider that for another arcade font I worked on.  Definitely would have been easier in this particular case!  But hey, if used in bitmap graphics, you can use a floodfill for the shadow area :)
