A 1989 side scrolling shooting game released on the arcades hardware by Capcom, and ported to home computers on 1990.
The game is a typical side scrolling shooter, going against the trend of other Capcom shooters, such as 1942, and 1943. It is like other Capcom shooters, the player has a life / energy bar that is consumed over the course of a single life as the player sustains damage, a trait highly uncommon among other comparable arcade-style shooters which normally use a system of reserve lives, where one of which is lost upon a single enemy hit. Your have the choice of 3 different characters to play as - Mickey Simon and his F-14 Tomcat, Shin Kazama with the F-20 Tigershark or Greg Gates and the A-10 Thunderbolt! Also featuring a simultaneous 2-player option.
This is a very brave attempt at an arcade conversion to the 8 bit home computers. The C64 features nice graphics, although I do prefer the CPC version which had better colors and more detailed background. The Commodore though had an excellent intro music theme, much like the Amiga and Atari ST versions.
