air raid video game

The Air Raid video game cartridge is considered by many to be the holy grail of the Atari 2600 game library. Manufactured by some fly-by-night company called Menavision, the Air Raid video game is a bizarre Space Invaders-type shooting game in which the player protects his cities from helicopters, spaceships, planes, rockets, flying saucers…basically a bunch of electronic garbage falling from the sky.… Read the rest
