Air Combat 22

Moby ID: 85508


Air Combat 22 is the arcade sequel to the first Air Combat in the long running Ace Combat series. You pilot one of three planes, a F14 Tomcat, Su-27 or the F22 Raptor. The sequel comes with improved graphics and again uses semi-realistic physics. The objective is to destroy enemy planes using guns or missiles over a succession of sorties and missions. A radar shows the location of enemy planes in relation to your own and on-screen arrows point towards the nearest enemy. Each mission starts with a enemy counter that decreases as enemy planes are dispatched of. The enemy count has to be taken down to zero before a timer runs out, else it is game over. A bonus stage has the player landing on an aircraft carrier for points. Later missions involve air-to-air refuelling and attacking enemy aircraft carriers and bases.
