Skyfox for Commodore 64

Skyfox for Commodore 64: An Overview

An incredibly ambitious title for the platform, Skyfox puts you in the role of the pilot of the titual airplane, the most advanced machine at The Federation, armed with radar guided missles, heat seaking missiles, and laser cannons, and tasks you with 15 different scenarios that can be played at five levels of skill. The game is often touted as popularising the "behind the cockpit" view that many later air combat simulators and a fair share of arcade games would later adopt, boasting a brightly coloured and well defined psuedo 3D perspective that runs at a pretty respectable framerate, and remains a very playable game to this day, in spite of its age.
