Commodore 64 Game Review
  • Simon - High Score: 158,400 pts
  • Graeme - High Score: 10 pts
  • Mat - High Score: 107,400 pts
  • Gordon - High Score: 190,850 pts


Excellent risk and reward gameplay with great variation between the levels. If only the first level was a little less tedious and the final level a little less difficult, then we would be playing ‘Raid’ far more.
