Raif "Bolter" Palmer remembers:

"Jet allowed you to fly an F-16 and an F/A-18 I think, and you could fly off of a carrier. I played it on a Commodore 64 in 1983 or 1984 I think. Man, I was so excited when it was released! It was the be-all and end-all at the time, with some ground-breaking elements, like remote views, guided missiles, air/ground ordnance, et cetera. A very cool game that probably ran at 10 fps at best."

Rich Linder remembers:

"In your writing about the 1984 era Sublogic JET simulation, you stated you thought that there was only a PC version. I personally had a version for the Commodore 64. It was indeed able to use scenery files for Flight Simulator II but (in my opinion) was not nearly as good, interesting or capable as a simulation as the regular FS II.

I had ALL the versions of Sublogic simulator for the Commodore and finally made the jump to the PC in the '286 days, about 1986 or so. I have all the 'Microsoft' versions for the PC since that time except the FS 2000 standard (I bought the 'Professional' version). I have been quite impressed with that."
