Look at you with your bright, shiny new PhantomJet. Be a shame if you crashed it…oh…you crashed it.

Jet Flight (Amstrad Cassette 50 Game 30)

I love this – the idea of making a flight simulator yet not bothering to make any graphics apart from the cockpit display and then making up some story about not being able to see where you’re flying. Cassette 50, you never cease to amaze me.

Bomber (Vic-20 Cassette 50 Game 28)

You know what’s a great way to destroy a city? Farting bombs. FARTING BOMBS. I know that because I played this game which is about destroying a city with bombs. And when the bombs hit a building they did a big fart sound. Who can argue with that?

Can I beg, right here and now, any pilot of any plane I ever get on not to do this.

In what kind of crazy, fucked up world do you have to destroy an entire city just to be able to refuel? In the crazy, fucked up world of “Jet Flight”, that’s where:

Jet Fighter? Jet FIGHTER? Surely you mean ‘Jet Lander’. Or ‘Jet Try and Land But Crash Horribly Every Time’.

My suggestion: Find a more practical runway.

Fly your plane safely through the other planes. The other planes being square blocks. This is one crowded airspace.  I think whoever is running air traffic control here needs to have a serious performance review because, when I go on holiday, I don’t expect my pilot to have to avoid other planes when taking off and landing. That is not stress-free and relaxing travel.

At first sight this might just look like an alternative version of one of Cassette 50’s previous games, the badly spelled Ivasive Action. There is one important difference though. It’s easier. Much easier. Take a look the video below and marvel at how I actually manage to finish a level. It’s quite an achievement. And yes, that is the sound of the TV in the background of the video. I’m so classy.
