Strike Force Harrier Demo
« on: 11:57, 01 April 21 »
Demo of the Strike Force Harrier game released in 1986 by Mirrorsoft.
Possibly this was given as a freebie with other Mirrorsoft games as a taster?
Demo loops at 2:53.

I played it once or twice but the "copy" I had didn't have any instructions (cough, cough ??? ) so unfortunately I can't say I'm really that familiar with it. Maybe someone else here can comment?

Har Har, maybe you've played too many CPC games @Gryzor and are beginning to jumble them up in memory?

No - well at least I remember that one pretty well, Ace of Aces. Never got really good at it but I really liked it!

I played one a few times that always ended in a crash with the cockpit glass cracking down the middle (thought that was a great effect) but can't remember what it was - Spitfire 40?
