Channel F


"The Red Baron meets the Blue Max in an aerial dogfight all over the screen. You can take an opponent in a 2-player dogfight, or more exciting yet, it's you against the computer in a 1-player battle.

You and the enemy air ace are engaged in an aerial dogfight up in the sky high above the earth. Try to shoot your opponent down and score a point before he sends you spiraling to the ground.

The Red Baron is in the lower left corner of the screen. The Blue Max is in the lower right corner. A control tower sits between them on the landing field."

An enjoyable game where you have to shotdown the ennemy plane more often than it does.

The game was directly inspired by Biplane, an arcade game released in 1975, but added some details:
- planes can now fly around the screen to reappear on the opposite side, which is a great gameplay improvement,
- you can play against the computer whereas the arcade version was 2 players only


    Spitfire was inspired by Biplane (Arcade)
