Red Devils

The name of this program is also the nickname of Manchester United football team, and they share in common the tactic of obstructing the opponent!

Little red men multiply rapidly on the screen blocking your way as you travel between the castles at the four corners of the screen, where you pick up points.

If you become surrounded, you might be able to use an escape hole, otherwise all you can do is to give up by pressing 'ESC'.

The instructions provided are very limited, but as the game is simple, this proved no real problem.

The display is colourful, and a variety of sound effects add interest to the game. However, the all-Basic program may be a little slow-moving for arcade game enthusiasts.
