Description

A-10 Attack! is an air combat flight simulator. The game features the A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft, affectionately known as the "Warthog," with a very comprehensive and realistic flight model for its day.

In addition to a detailed cockpit and fast 3D polygonal graphics, A-10 Attack! features a map overview where the player can command a small squadron of aircraft including F-16's, F-15's, and C-5 Galaxy transport aircraft. The scenario is a fictional invasion of West Germany by Soviet forces and because of that the actual combat missions take place over Germany (the training missions are set in a desert arena).

A wide variety of weapons are available for air-air and air-ground combat, including Sidewinder, Hellfire, Maverick and HARM missiles and free-fall, laser-guided and cluster bombs. Created by Eric Parker, writer of Hellcats Over the Pacific, the game offered features never previously seen in air combat simulations for the Macintosh.

Development

Eric Parker originally developed A-10 Attack! on a Silicon Graphics Indigo workstation with a MIPS R4000 CPU. It took him weeks to convert the floating-point math operations to fixed-point for speedy execution on Motorola 68k and Intel x86 machines.
