AmigaACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Visually, Sky Chase has limited appeal, but as a combative dogfighting game it has little competition (but see the multi-player games feature this ish). It's a long way from a proper flight sim, has a minimal game area, no exploration or strategy element and essentially zero gameplay - but actually facing an opponent with brains (human or otherwise) or arguably worth all of those.
AmigaST/Amiga Format
Dual-screen aerial combat simulations are something of a rarity on any machine. On 16-bitters, Sky Chase is a first. If the graphic detail were more substantial we'd be dealing with something very special. As it is we're looking at an above average shoot-em-up employing smooth screen routines to convey the performance capabilities of a range of advanced fighters. Where Sky Chase really scores though is in its provision of one-to-one combat for two players. When you're up there with a friend as your for you won't have time to analyse the graphics.

Flight simulator purists may scoff at the game's simplicity and arcade freaks yawn at its graphics and effects. In trying to please everyone Image Works has undoubtedly compromised with both of these main game playing aspects of Sky Chase. Nonetheless, I think the company has still come up with a good, playable end product that has a lot to offer.

The ST interpretation is slightly faster than Its Commodore counterpart, and as a result is a tad more playable. The title tune and spot effects are still nothing to write home about, but as a two player head to head combat game it successfully manages to hold Its fudge.

Mehr Spaß macht‘s also nur mit einem Mitspieler, denn dann kann man sich heiße Fights über den Wolken liefern, die ein bissel spannender sind. Schade nur, daß auch bei dieser Spielweise die Möglichkeiten des Programms bald ausgereizt sind, denn schon nach einigen Spielen macht sich bemerkbar, daß die Motivation aufgrund des simplen Spielprinzips doch ziemlich bergab geht. Wenn ich mir dann überlege, daß der Spielefan für dieses Programm ca. 75 Märker hinblättern soll, kann ich vom Kauf eigentlich nur abraten. Für ein Low Budget Spiel wäre SKYCHASE ein würdiger Vertreter, so aber kann man IMAGE WORKS nur wünschen, daß das Image mit besseren Produkten noch kräftig aufpoliert wird, denn ansonsten sollte man das Label lieber umtaufen...

Das beste an Skychase ist die flotte Grafik. Das Programm wird aber schnell langweilig; vor allem, wenn man gegen den Computer spielt. Wenn sich zwei etwa gleichstarke Spieler bekämpfen, kommt trotz des simplen Ablaufs wesentlich mehr Stimmung auf.
