Description of Jet

One of the earliest flight sims known to man is this Sublogic game with an awe-inspiring title . Jet allowed you to fly an F-16 and an F/A-18, and you could fly off of a carrier. Although very primitive by today's standards, the game was revolutionary for its time, with as much real-world physics as would fit on a single 5.25" 360KB disk. The Commodore 64 version, naturally, was superior to PC version due to a much more extensive color palette than 4-color CGA.

Developed by Charles Guy using Bruce Artwick's technology, Jet has the interesting feature of being able to run Scenery Disks developed for Microsoft's Flight Simulator. When the game was released, it was the be-all and end-all at the time, with some ground-breaking elements, like remote views, guided missiles, etc.

For those who want where flight sims come from : this is their great-grandfather :)

The Atari ST version (at least) would let you fly with a friend as your wing man over a modem connection. Seemed like black magic back then.

I have the fondest memories from playing this game in my first PC: a monochrome Epson Equity I+. I absolutely ADORED this game, played it for countless hours instead of doing my homework or study for exams. I still use flight simulator and recently bought the F-18 Superbug addon for FSX. I'm happy to be able to play again the game that started it all for me.

I had the Amiga 500 version of this, probably dating to 1988/89 - even THEN I thought it extremely lame, low on content, unrealistic, terrible (even for the '88 Amiga scene) graphics. Paid about £30 for it new and regretted every penny.
