Description of Megafortress

An oft-overlooked modern flight sim, Megafortress is a fun sim that puts you in command of the formidable "Megafortress" B-52 bomber that can house up to 8 crew and packs tons of bombs.

As with another underdog B-17 Flying Fortress, the fun here is in commanding the various crew members aboard the plane to work in concert. The 30-mission campaign is well designed, although the personnel element isn't as strong as the flight dynamics.

Review By HOTUD

Megafortress has an addon available: Megafortress: Operation Sledgehammer, don't miss it!

Read the book, played the game.

Great flight sim. The DOS versions is vastly better than the Amiga one I suffered with. Amiga runs at 5 fps in low res. Dos version is smooth as silk on a 12mhz 286 in 256 colors.

gs 2016-06-28 1 point '94 I learned to use a computer when I was about 7 years old at a kind neighbors house. Their kids and I would play this and scorched earth for ages.

Awesome game, I remember celebrating the first time I landed a plane.

Matt 2016-05-28 1 point DOS version

Is there a manual for this game?

Kept me sane during some dark days when other aspects of life were underperforming!

There is some problem with iff/transponder, i think it's a anticopy protection. You need a valid number or you will be destroyed "by the good guys". It's impossible to play this way.
