That was the first game I bought for my Amiga. The one thing I remember in that game was, you never were able to see another a/c just a shining dot.
lol, yes that was my experience! I was adamant that it would be possible to get closer but the enemy was always at most a dot on the horizon - i spent most of the game, flying around san fran and flying under the golden gate and then trying to just successfully land on the carrier again
i think it was part of some suite of games that came with the amiga 500 - because we had technocop, hard drivin, dogs of war, some tennis game that my sisters always played, silkworm, xenon, - i am not sure where these came from, i never saw my parents buying them, they just were there one day, maybe a friend gave them or something.
