Flight of the Intruder, a simulation game released in 1990 by Mirrorsoft. The game was released for Amiga, Atari ST, PC (DOS) and NES.
The Vietnam War is a frequent topic of computer games. "Flight of the Intruder" also refers to the novel by Stephen Coonts, describing the fate of American pilots. The player can choose from two types of machines: Grumman A-6 Intrudera and McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II. The creators of the game perfectly captured the specificity of both machines by introducing a number of difficulties that American soldiers had to deal with. In addition, we will be limited by the historical rules of fighting, the breaking of which will make it impossible to complete the mission. Particular tasks most often concern bombing or patrolling a given air area. An interesting fact is large air operations, where our task will be to cooperate with other fighters guided by artificial intelligence. The creators of the game made it possible to switch between individual machines and automatically plan the flight route, and even scroll through those stages of the mission in which we have no contact with the enemy. We can also leave the more difficult stages of the game (such as landing) in the hands of AI.
