Alien Attack is a 1979 handheldvideo game made by Coleco using a VFD display. It came in a bright orange futuristic-styled case and controls were a joystick, fire button, and move button. The controls were unusual in that the player's ship could fire in any direction by moving the joystick with the fire button pressed. Movement only occurred when the move button was pressed. Firing while moving was not possible. There was a grid of barriers representing a city that the player could use for cover.
