Exhibit - Carrier Command (1989)
Why is a strategy game about 'Carriers' in the sim museum?Because it contained a flight sim module, with carrier ops, air-to-air and air-to-ground. Having settled that, read on.
You could monitor damage to your carrier with the amazing 3D wire-frame carrier view. In 1988 wire frame graphics were still pretty exciting. You had to set priorities for your repair crews.
One of the very first "Aircraft Carriers" simulated on a personal computer.
This part reminded me of the old "Trek" games, text based starship battle management games. Text based games, haven't played one of those in a while....on second thoughts, why spoil the memory! I had the Atari ST version, a friend had the PC version.... it cracked me up that the enemy carrier steamed away at about 400 knots every time you got near it! I remember chasing that darn thing for weeks! When I finally caught up with it created about 5 saved games and pounded the carrier every which way!
