Trivia

TV documentation

When the game was released, the Central TV franchise based in the Birmingham area heard that the game was programmed by a schoolboy, and wanted to do a feature on this latest programming whizz-kid. To verify the situation they contacted Spectrum magazine Crash! , whose deputy editor Roger Kean quipped (perhaps sensing an opportunity) "I'll have to ask our schoolboy reviewers" (the magazine had strong 'fanzine'-type roots). Soon after Central sent a TV crew to Crash!'s offices in Ludlow, but by fate the journalist they asked about the game was the only one of the three reviewers who wasn't hugely keen on the game, so the final report largely focused on Crash! and ignored Airwolf.
