Falcon Patrol II is a computer game for the Commodore 64, written by Steve Lee and published by Virgin Games in 1984.

Summary[edit]

This video game was also released for the ZX Spectrum in 1985. It is the sequel to Falcon Patrol.

Falcon Patrol II is a shoot-'em-up situated in a landscape resembling Egypt or the Middle East. The player controls a jet fighter and has to destroy a set number of enemy helicopters in order to clear a level. The helicopters come in three forms:

Transport 
an unarmed transport helicopter that lays missile turrets and radar interference devices on the ground.
Gunship 
escorts the transport helicopters and shoots at your fighter.
Solo 
a fast combat helicopter that goes right after your fighter.

The jet fighter has a finite supply of fuel and ammunition, but both can be replenished by landing on a landing pad.
