This game presents you with an impressive menu, but the meal to follow is rather mediocre - a bit like ordering a Crepe Suzeue in a five star hotel and being served a pancake with orange juice!

After loading, you are presented with a selection of speeds ranging from slow through normal to fast, and a choice of Missiles, UFOs, Meteors or the Fortress and Base.

I duly did battle with all of the above-mentioned hazards at all the aforementioned speeds, but still could not whip up any enthusiasm for a second helping.

As an introduction to this type of game, maybe - though what an inexperienced player would make of the plane ploughing through mountains without any apparent damage I can't imagine.
