Lordy be! I remember when this first came out. At the time there was a bit of a fuss 'cos one magazine gave it a smashing review while virtually everyone else thought it was pretty naff. Airwolf isn't actually all that bad though.

You must pilot the famous billion-dollar helicopter into the cavernous base of some terrorist organisation and airlift kidnapped scientists to safety, avoiding self building walls, death rays, cannons and other assorted hazards, without crashing into the walls or smashing your rotor blades to pieces on the roof.

The whole game isn't particularly large but, boy, is it tough. At budget price this certainly isn't a bad purchase, but there are better games around.
