Blitz variants

Group Description

Popularly known as Blitz, the progenitor of this game is said to be Air Attack for the Commodore PET, based upon a sketchy description of Atari game Canyon Bomber. In the game, an airplane flies across the screen above a city with skyscrapers. When the plane reaches the far end of the screen, it reappears on the other end, but at a lower altitude since it is running out of fuel. The objective is to drop bombs on the city to destroy all buildings so that the plane may land on level ground. This kind of game is usually controlled with only one button (see also the One-button games group.)
