This is a new type of flying game which takes its roots
from Pitstop II. It's a head to head flight simulator/game
where the scenario is Korea (1950-1953) and you've got
the choice: shoot down the enemy or die.
format of the game is extremely similar to Pitstop
II with a split screen view from both aeroplanes,
one player using one screen and the second player using
the other. These screens are quite realistic in the
way they behave, if you are flying towards each other
then you will see the other player flying towards you
and if you look at his screen then you will see yourself
flying towards him.
are several settings when you load the game and you
have the choice of either having a single player game,
a two-player head to head, or a two-player cooperative.
If you have a one-player game then the computer takes
over the second player's screen. You can also select
the number of 'Wingmen' if you need them. These become
part of the team and they fight with you. You can vary
the amount of Wingmen between two players so, for example,
player one could fight solo against player two with
screen contains information to help you fly. There is
a speed indicator, altimeter, engine power, and a radar
showing any aircraft within the vicinity of your plane.
Unfortunately, it doesn't distinguish between enemy
and friendly planes; it's up to you to track them down
visually (player one's planes are dark grey and player
two's are light grey). There are also low altitude indicators
and a low ammo indicator (you have a very limited amount).
are five different scenarios to tackle, each scenario
representing a different situation during the war. The
first is the Battle for Pusan, and you have to defend
US troops against enemy YAK 90 fighter bombers. The
second is the Sunchon Airdrop, where you have to pilot
a modified C-119 transport plane across enemy lines
whilst beating off attacks from enemy YAKs. Mig Alley
is an exciting scenario -- you have to fly your F9F
Panther into Mig Alley and destroy all the MIG-15s you
Airfield puts you in a defence situation. While your
Thunderjets strafe the airfield, you have to supply
air cover against the attacking MIGs in your F-86 Sabrejet.
The fifth scene is similar to the fourth and again you
have to supply air support against the marauding MIGs.
are points to be scored for shooting down planes
and bonuses for completing levels etc. You get ratings
for the amount of points scored, from Novice to MGFP
(World's Greatest Fighter Pilot).
