The object of this game is to defend the buildings at the bottom of the screen.

There are four types of attacking ships moving down the screen. You are moving just above the buildings. The enemies are dropping bombs to try to damage your buildings or destroy you. You must fire missiles up to destroy them. The waves of enemies never ends.

The game ends when all three of your ships are destroyed or when both buildings have taken so much damage that they collapse.

There are eight game variations. Some where the ships move side-to-side while moving down, some where your shots move to the side when you do, some faster and some with combinations of any or all of these.

In 2007, Rare Video Game Auctions published a list of the most rare and pricy games ever released. Air Raid is ranked 8th with $3000+.

While this game is rare, with less than twenty known to exist, its box is extremely hard to find. An AtariAge poster discovered he had the game in its original box. The original box has, as far as it is known, never before come up for auction. The game with box sold on eBay on April 10, 2010 for a final price of $31,600.00.
