Alien Attack

I went home to my parents over the weekend and found Alien Attack, the Micro Computer Game. I think it was first on the market in 1982, but I didn’t get my hands on this until the mid-80s. You can see a video of how it played here, but as you can imagine it was pretty simple. Move forward. Shoot the rising aliens. Avoid bullets. Don’t crash or run out of fuel. I completed it a dozen times at least.
