Excellent approach of top gun for the Atari. I have finally fulfilled my dream of landing a jet haha. Loved the ending as well!
While this is a fairly simple game (underlying physics notwithstanding) it's a fun challenge trying to land on the carrier. The description of exactly how the game works is maybe a bit too detailed, but it's cool to see all the research that went into making a realistic flight simulation. Well, as realistic as you can get for the Atari 5200. Though considering how many crashes it took me to get a successful landing I should never be allowed to be a pilot if this reflects reality. The graphics are pretty nice and do a good job of representing the environment while sticking to the limitations. Sound sound effects would be nice but the Atari 5200 isn't exactly known for it's stellar audio so I can't complain too much.
