This game is a vertical-scrolling shoot em up that pretty much resembles SWIV. This game was created in 1992 for the Atari ST and the Amiga, by Atlantis Software.
 
Review
Apache Flight We are towards the end of the Cold War between the USA and the USSR. In the Eastern Europe countries, communism gave its place to democracy and all the governments decided to leave nuclear holocaust behind, signing disarmament treaties and getting rid of stock-piles of nuclear warheads. But all this seemed inadequate to protect the world, since some of these weapons have ultimately fallen into the hands of a terrorist organization from around the world. Your mission, as an Apache combat pilot, is to find the terrorists, destroy their weapon hangars and prevent potential mass destruction of the planet. You collect several bonuses during your flight, by shooting down enemies and increasing weaponry and health. The game is a typical bottom-up scrolling shooter but of a little slow action. Although there are plenty of nasties to shoot (either on air or ground), everything moves a bit slow on teh Atari ST version! Nevertheless, the game is playable but its difficulty would probably make you leave it soon.

The ST version has nice colorful graphics though sprite animation (and background scrolling) suffers. I would expect better results here, as the game graphics does not offer any special techniques (such parallax scrolling etc). I really liked some details of the attack choppers, the battle-tanks and the anti-air cannons. But most of the landscapes are repetitive. In terms of detail there are minor differences compared to the Amiga version (which runs way smoother and fast though).
The sound features some nice sampled SFX without being top notch though, whist there is a very short tune at the intro (in contrast to the Amiga version which offers a pretty good intro theme).
