DOS - 1992
Description of Jump Jet
One of MicroProse's most overlooked flight sim, Harrier Jump Jet is a very detailed flight simulator of the RAF's Harrier GR7 and the US Marine Corps' AV-8B using a - for its time - very innovative gouraud shading technology to create more realistic looking objects and landscapes.
The result looks quite nice, not realistic by todays standards, but much better than what one was used to. Developed by the UK division of MicroProse, Harrier Jump Jet is a great addition to the company's long list of classic flight-sims.
With excellent graphics, flight dynamics, and campaign options, Harrier Jump Jet is highly recommended to all armchair pilots, and especially to fans of Digital Integration's Tornado. It may not be as realistic as Simis' Super-VGA Harrier, but it's hell of a lot of fun to fly. Two thumbs up!

this is one of the nicer looking old-school dogfighters.
couldn't seem to find a way to setup my controls though
so I was stuck using the keyboard.
HARR is the application to start the game so type that
in dosbox or drag and drop it over the dosbox program.

You're welcome ;)
The game is cracked so you don't need any manual !

Thanks for making this available - a real blast from the past!
However, do you have the manual? You need it to be able to get past the manual protection system at the start of the sim.
