This wonderful roll-around gives the player three droids to choose between in an attempt to clear a number of hexagons on a grid. Clear a line of hexagons and you've won - simple! Not quite, because each hex represents a landscape and you have to collect four energy pods from each landscape, whilst trying to survive the onslaught from all the resident aliens. The landscape for each hex varies and this is when droid selection becomes of paramount importance. Some hexes have steep, twisting slopes, so you'll need a droid that sticks to slopes like glue. Other hexes are covered with acid lakes, so you'll need to select a different droid to cope with them. Red LED is a challenging, frustrating, but hugely addictive game and one to look out for.
