Very true, although if you go on the forest road and type "Help", you get back "Wait a While", I still needed a mate who had read it in a magazine to help me get past it.

Looks obscure. Probably something unbelievably dismal with a name that sounds great.
My guess is "Super Fortress DefenderJet: Snot all The Radars Or Die" on the Thorn EMI Fartatron.
I could be wrong though.

Acorn Atom - Plane and tank battle.

This doesn't really count as a retro game as it was programmed in march 1998 according to Stairway to hell.

I knew that was the reason why I never got it! cheating I tell you.

Q) Which spectrum game is considered by many (including me) to be the grand-daddy of RTS games.
