Description official descriptions

In Barnstorming, you are the pilot of a biplane. Your point of view is from the side as the screen scrolls by horizontally. Your goal is to fly through a set number of barns in the shortest amount of time possible. Several obstacles will appear in your way, including flocks of geese, windmills, and weather vanes. Crashing into any of these will cause you to lose speed which will increase your overall time. There are several difficulty levels included which will require that you fly through anywhere from 10 to 25 barns.

Trivia

High score rewards

Activision used to reward players by sending them a fabric patch if sent them proof that player achieved a certain high score on the game (ie. a photograph of the high score). To get the patch for this game, you had to get 33.3 seconds score of game 1, 51.0 seconds score of game 2, or 54.0 seconds score of game 3. The patch was called Flying Aces. Here is a picture of that patch at AtariAge.

In this case: * 33.3 seconds/game 1 * 51.0 seconds/game 2 * 54.0 seconds/game 3
