Flight Simulator Games Collection

                                            Reviewed
+
-
The first 4D Game Collection from 4D / APDL and certainly one of the best.
+
-
This collection was released back in July 2005 but it's still great quality for money.
+
-
You get 9 flight simluator games and are all RISC OS 4 and StrongARM compatible for £14.90
+
-
Here's what ya' get:
+
-
+
-
Air Supremacy
+
-
Chopper Force
+
-
Chocks Away
+
-
Mosquito Fire
+
-
Birds of War
+
-
Spitfire Fury
+
-
Interdictor II
+
-
F18 Hornet
+
-
SunBurst
+
-
+
-
It wasted a week of my holiday but I did complete SunBurst in that time and I was glued to my 
+
-
seat while playing F18Hornet and Birds of War.
+
-
 
+
-
APDL, (the distributor) have great offers on their 4Th Dimension range of collections on their
+
-
stand at shows and on their stand there are offers on their other products too like Wizard's 
+
-
Apprentice, Interdictor II, GEK Collection, StarFighter 3000 'Other Worlds' CD, Technodream and 
+
-
Nevryon and lots more.
+
-
+
-
If your into games like Descent, Descent 2 and StarFighter 3000 then you will enjoy this collection 
+
-
but the graphics are not as good as Descent 2 and the games aren't 3D but if you want something
+
-
that'll keep you occupied for the weekend then this is it.
+
-
+
-
You also get more than just nine games, all the manuals are all included in html format and Chocks 
+
-
Away contains:
+
-
 
+
-
Chocks Away Disc 1
+
-
Chocks Away Disc 2
+
-
Chocks Away Extra Missions
+
-
+
-
All games will run on most RISC OS (not Arthur) machines but you do need to have a CD-ROM drive to 
+
-
install the games on to Hard Drive, so you do need a Hard Drive and a Web Browser or html viewer.
+
-
+
-
If you have something like a A310 or A440 which haven't got CD-ROM Drives then if you connect them 
+
-
to a network with a CD-ROM drive then you will be able to play the games because you do not need
+
-
the CD after installation.
+
-
+
-
All games run perfectly on my A7000+ with RISC OS 3.71 with 2X CD-ROM drive but unfortunately most
+
-
games won't run on an Iyonix or even Aemulor Pro but all games will work on a StrongARM RiscPC,
+
-
Omega, R7500+ or a Virtual RPC machine.
+
-
+
-
To run Interdictor II you will need a printer to print the drawfile with all the combinations on to
+
-
get you in to the game.
+
-
The DrawFile is included.
+
-
+
-
iSV Products / APDL do sell Interdictor II seperately but as I do not own a copy of that version I 
+
-
don't know if there's a printed manual but you would think so.
+
-
+
-
I do hope that APDL / 4D release 32-Bit versions of these collections because Iyonix users are
+
-
missing out.
+
-
+
-
Of what I have read in magazines and news portals, the A9Home will be able to run many 26-bit
+
-
programs that the Iyonix could not run so then some games from this collection might be able to run
+
-
natively on an A9Home.
+
-
+
-
Overall I Rate This Collection 8/10
