Amiga Computing review
gave Battle Squadron
a whopping 109% (!) in their review, with both the graphics and gameplay scores going off the scale.
Atari ST conversion
Although The One reported the conversion of Battle Squadron
on the ST is in production and should be released in autumn 1990, this version was never released.
The non-playable demo of the Amiga version contains an intro sequence that is animated and colorful when compared to the same but non-animated and black and white intro sequence in the game. Apparently there wasn't enough disk space for a full quality intro so they cut it down. The same cut-down intro is used in the Genesis version too.
