Jetstrike is a side-scrolling shoot 'em up released in 1994 with the aircraft and weapons choices of a sim.

Game Info[edit]

Jetstrike was originally released on the Amiga, rejigged for the A1200 as an AGA version, then released again on the CD32. The CD32 version was ranked the 28th best game of all time by Amiga Power.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

Jetstrike is a side scrolling shooter, similar in feel to Defender from the early 1980s and Wings of Fury from the late 1980s with the wrap around screen and left-to-right-to-left turning across the landscape. Jetstrike added a "sim" feel to this with about 200 aircraft to choose from each with a slightly different feel and almost as many weapons with which to shoot down aircraft or blow up ground based enemies.
