As a vertical scroller, you control aircraft flying over enemy territory, shooting militaristic tanks and aircraft, avoiding enemy gun fire and hidden missiles. This full-featured game makes use of the graphic capabilities with complex parallax scrolling and realistic and engaging audio quality. This was essentially developed as a yardstick for performance, color and sprite comparisons to showcase the Jaguar's capabilities. Speed and motion are exceptional with no slow down when mass objects are present on the screen. No other system comes close to accurately converting this arcade game to a home console.
