The following text is taken from the manual of the game.
Read it, it`s good for a laugh!

"Welcome to France, 1916. In those days, the life expectancy of young

machine gun, too. Enemys around are submarines (in a RIVER??? - must be a
fjord!) and zeppelins (both come up from time to time). They can shoot,

It`s very easy to take off, but it`s not possible to land. (Believe me!)

Graphics are good
Sound is very good
Gameplay is best

Remember the C64 or early games on A500. They were simple, but GREAT. They
made them CULT games. This is one of those games. FUN...
