Description

Fight off a band of vandals and punks with your airplane before they reach your city. One of the earliest shareware games, you pilot a prop plane that is represented in "3D" -- you can see (and manipulate) your plane in both the horizontal and vertical viewpoints. Refuel with your blimp, but don't waste too much time...
