Alex sez: "A brilliant shoot-em-up. Probably." Rather more helpfully, it's a 3-d texture-mapped game based in a futuristic cityscape reminiscent of Bladerunner, containing elements of flight simulation, wargaming, combat, high-powered weaponry, and more. Current progress: 40% complete. Expected completion date: mid-late '95.

Was a first person, flight sim in a city environment. The game was far too early to comment on other than I'll say the enemies looked fantastic (all texturemapped) but the control was lacking.... The game is a 3D urban flight combat sim... you attack texture mapped tanks, planes, helicopters, etc. The enemies were VERY pretty. One more note... the EEPROM was dated 9/15/94.
