MAME Info:

0.138u3 [The Dumping Union]

0.29 [Nicola Salmoria]


- 0.138u3: The Dumping Union added 'Defend the Terra Attack on the Red UFO' (Artic 1981). Changed 'Defend the Terra Attack on the Red UFO' to clone 'Defend the Terra Attack on the Red UFO (bootleg)'. Renamed (redufo) to (redufob). hap made redufo Artic version the parent and bootleg version a clone.

- 7th April 2010: Smitdogg - We got what appears to be the original release of Defend the Terra Attack on the Red UFO thanks to Smack, formerly Redpinata. It appears the version in MAME is Rev.A. This one uses one more 2716 than the set in MAME and doesn't have the a's on the rom names so maybe a goal of Rev.A was to reduce the code size to save money.

- 0.132: Tafoid and Fujix changed year to 1981 (Arcade TV Game List book).

- 0.124u1: Added 'Unused' dipswitch.

- 0.63: Changed description to 'Defend the Terra Attack on the Red UFO'.

- 0.37b4: Added clone Exodus (bootleg?) (Subelectro 19??). Changed parent description to 'Defend the Terra Attack on the Red UFO (bootleg)'.

- 2nd June 2000: Mike Coates added Exodus (which is the original version of Red UFO) to the Galaxian driver.

- 0.34b1: Added color prom.

- 0.30: Valerio Verrando added high score saving to Red Ufo.

- 0.29: Nicola Salmoria added 'Defend the Terra Attack on the Red UFO' (Artic 1981).
