History of Raid
The USSR has launched a major attack against the USA, and the only hope for the free world is for you (as the leader of a squad of US fighters) to destroy their defence bases. This is done in a multi-stage action game with some similarities to Beach Head from the same developer. All mini-games must be completed before the bomb time limit expires.
The first thing you'll see is a missile launch; then the game takes you to your hangar, from where you must quickly launch as many ships as possible, a task made difficult by the limited gravity. You must then fly it into Soviet airspace in a side-view shooting section, where keeping low keeps you safe from radar, and quick reactions will see you shoot at enemy fighters and avoid trees.
How to play Raid
The next scene takes place in a single screen view, with five windows to shoot through and enemies pointing at you to be avoided. You then reach the base and must shoot at the approaching enemies. Finally, you must use discs on a wall, so that they bounce back to hit the maintenance robots, with the ultimate goal of causing the base to overheat, the Soviet attack to be thwarted and the US to be saved.
