Box Cover - Windows (Idigicon), 2004:
    The vast continent-spanning city of Collosotropolis has finally reached the limits of its expansion. Tall buildings cover every available space. The air is thick with smoke and poisonous chemicals. Parking is a nightmare.

    The Collosotropolitan leaders have decided the simplest solution is to invade the neighbouring country of Mungola. They don't anticipate much of a struggle - Mungolans are simple, earthy types without much love for industry. In fact, Mungola's entire defense force consists of a single squadron of fighter planes - the venerable F-27 "Platypus".

    What possibly threat could a few antique aircraft be to the mighty Collosotropolitan battle fleet...?
