Note! This review was written for a previous version of this file!

Many BASIC programmers including myself have attempted flight simulators in BASIC, only to find that the speed of the language is not up to the task. Sadly, this program continues the trend. Instead of scenery or even a dashboard (which has very low CPU overhead) you get a black screen with two white lines representing the horizon and normal line. Controls are standard arrow keys, and numbers about your flight such as altitude and airspeed are listed in cryptic lines at the bottom. I'm afraid that this just didn't deserve being played a second time, although the author seems to have put a fair amount of work into it.

Graphics: 4/10

Speed: 7/10

Originality: 6/10

Execution: 2/10

Overall: 4/10 Poor
