Exhibit:F-19 Stealth Fighter

Commodore Amiga version

" This was the first sim I brought for the Amiga - and what a cracking game it was. The cockpit & systems were just mind-blowing when comparing to the earlier sims on the Spectrum I had used. The main game was based on the same campaigns as the Spectrum version : Libya, Persian Gulf, North Cape & Central Europe.

You could play each scenario in various levels of conflict, from clandestine missions to full scale non-nuclear war, as well as choosing the competence of the opposition. You also had the option of doing training missions in each area ( but you gained no score for these ).

The game allowed you to progress through the ranks of the USAF upto the rank of Brigadier General before being "retired" to a desk job. You could also earn various medals & ribbons for deeds of bravery or obscenely high scores. The really odd detail that comes to mind was that even in the full-scale war, if you were shot down & captured, you would be released a few days later after some sort of deal had been made, which enabled you to continue flying - who said chivalry is dead!? "

MiGMan thanks Rob "Bomber" Henderson for these recollections.
