Danger Zone - Atari 7800



Danger Zone

Welcome to the Aerial Combat Fighter Weapons School. Forget everything you thought you knew about dogfighting with combat jets. Here you will relearn the art of aerial dogfighting.

At the Aerial Combat Fighter Weapons School, you will practice the forgotten art of the dogfight. Get in, get close, take your shot and get out. You can be a maverick or a goose, the choice is yours, but one thing is for sure, if you let your opponent on to your six, you will crash and burn.

If you are good enough, maybe you will get to call yourself the “Top Gun”...

Remember, no points for second place.

Before training can begin, each pilot must first choose from one of three different aircraft:

  • Martin F16 Fighting Falcon
  • Mikoyan Gurevich MiG21bis
  • Eurofighter Typhoon

Each player can then choose their preferred camouflage colors. Next you can adjust cloud setup and various dogfight options (fuel, ammo, gun range, guided shots, bullet wrap, time of day, and either a timed game or a target score).

After options have been chosen, it's time to take to the air!

To win the contest, you have to outscore your opponent. You score points by registering gun hits on your opponent. A hit will score one point. The winner is the player with the highest score when either the timer runs out (timed games) or the score limit is met (scored games). The player with the highest score takes the coveted “Top Gun” trophy.
