Red Attack is a 'Galaxovariant' shoot em up with 72 attack waves, six waves to a level with 9 different types of alien. As usual you laser base can move left and right at the base of the screen but, like Arcadia, you are allowed to move up the screen, in this case, right to the top. Your ship fails back under the force of gravity quite rapidly. The aliens wrap around vertically and horizontally.
There are two speeds for laser fire and two playing speeds selectable from the front-end menu, and it is possible to enter any stage between levels 1 and 5 with consequent forfeiture of lives. What makes Red Attack unusual is that the computer will keep a high score table going for up to 9 players.
