Raid Over Moscow - An all time classic has finally arrived on the Amiga!

April is going all out with the great news, as if you think Fix It Felix Jr. for the C64 was a rather special announcement, then Raid Over Moscow on the Amiga will have your jaws hitting the floor. Yes indeed this amazing 8bit game of which we have announced as coming to the Amiga, has finally been released by Pixelglass Games; a great game that was originally released in the early 80's for the C64, Atari 8-bit, Amstrad CPC, BBC Micro, ZX Spectrum and Apple II.

Released during the Cold War era, Raid Over Moscow is an all time classic game and the developers second best-selling Commodore game as of late 1987, after Beach-Head.  Raid Over Moscow is also an action game; a game in which the player (an American space pilot) has to stop three Soviet nuclear attacks on North America, then fight his way into and destroy a nuclear facility located in Moscow's Kremlin. According to the game's story line, the United States is unable to respond to the attack directly due to the dismantlement of its nuclear arsenal.

It's incredible to think it was only at the tail end of last year Raid Over Moscow was teased for the Amiga as a public downloadable beta, that was enjoyed by a number of our retro fans including Amiga Bill and even Pintz & Amiga. But today's news is something special indeed! As thanks to an early morning heads up by our good friend Earok , we now know the full version is here, complete with three difficulty levels, a modern control scheme, a full length soundtrack, six scenes of white knuckle action and all supported for 68K Amigas, 1MB and up as a faithful adaptation of the C64 classic, completing an unfinished port by Adrian Cummings and US Gold!
