"A disappointment. The plane cannot fly fast enough to catch the enemy planes - which enter the screen at random heights so no pre-planning is possible, and landing at any landing pad is also impossible."
Computer Gamer


"The Battle Begins...
Skyhawk: the ultimate flying machine.
Scrolling countryside to defend... or die in the trying."

The Story So Far...

They lived in fear from the raiders. It was almost as if the retribution for the War would never end. Then the silver-suited men appeared. Skyhawk arrived. The raiders returned but, this time, they met powerful weapons - Skyhawk and you...


Allow maximum fuel and ammunition to be loaded before taking off, speed is of the essence. On the bottom right of the screen you will see the fuel and ammunition loading. Use the radar to position yourself and listen for the low fuel warning.

Points are awarded for shooting down aircraft: 25, 50, 100, 200. A bonus life is awarded at 3,000 points. Fuel decreases according to the speed. You must land on an undamaged fuel pad to refuel and re-arm. Skyhawk is the bar in the centre of the radar display. The blips are the enemy. Intact fuel pads are the lights on the bottom.
