Flight Simulator 1 - TRS80 version Flight Simulator I

Host Sim - SELF
Release Date - Before 1980
Developer - Bruce Artwick

Comments - Flight Simulator 1 was one of the first flight sims released for personal computers. A whole generation of flight sim fans were hooked for life on the wire frame graphics and the "dogfighting" in the Sopwith Camel. The graphical splendour rested mainly in the mind of the player - but it was a beginning! This exhibit looks at the Apple ][, IBM and TRS-80 versions.

Comments - Michael Woodley reported: "At the time, there were three 6502 versions of FSII. There was one for the Apple II, one for the Commodore 64 and one for the Atari 800. When the the Atari ST and Amiga were introduced (which ran the Motorolla 68000 processor), new versions were released for those machines, for the Tandy and for the MacIntosh through Microsoft. The versions of FSII for the 6502 processor DID have solid filled graphics not just wireframe."
