F-117A Stealth Fighter is a shooter/flight simulator for the Nintendo Entertainment System where the player would fight enemy aircraft and destroy ground targets.


The player takes control of a stealth fighter aircraft, and is required to pilot the craft on a series of missions to destroy ground targets. The equipment of the player's craft can be customized, with different missile and bombs available for different combat roles. Amazing weapons such as the X-Press missiles for taking down UFOs (which may or may not be terrestrial in origin) are bonus items in the game that will help the player.

Early levels of this game are based on actual conflicts, such as the 1986 United States bombing of Libya, the Gulf War, and the United States Invasion of Panama. Later missions involve theoretical conflicts in Korea and the Soviet Union, and move on to science-fiction events involving secret missions and UFOs.
