Blue Lightning is a pseudo-simulation computer game in which the player controls a military airplane. The game was one of the first games for the Atari Lynx, released in 1989 and was programmed by Epyx, headed by lead programmer, Brian Bowhay, (who also developed the Lynx). The game was well received by critics.[1]

In 1995 a remake, developed by Attention To Detail, was released as a pack-in game for the Atari Jaguar CD. The remake was poorly received. It was often criticized for having graphics, animation, and gameplay that are "not that much of an enhancement over the Lynx version".[2]
