Spitfire '40

Spitfire '40 was heralded on the Commodore 64 for its amazing graphics and lifelike action. Spitfire '40 on the Amstrad is just as good.

Flying from your airfield in the depths of misty Kent you climb up into the skies in search of your foe - the dreaded hun!

As a flight simulator, it is like any other good flight simulator, the controls are very nicely set out and you toggle them onto the screen when you want to see them, otherwise you are just looking out of your cockpit.

Combat sequences are very good, though when you fly into a squadron of baddies, you seem to get them after you one at a time.

There is a rating system where you try to improve your rank and get higher and higher medals. Status can be saved for later use.

As far as I've seen so far, this is one of the best flight simulators that I have seen on the Amstrad - and probably the best WWII/combat types that I have seen on it.
