Skyfox / Skyfox II

Skyfox was released by Electronic Arts in 1984 for several home computers. I originally played the game on my Apple II, but picked up a copy of the Commodore 64 a year later.

Skyfox was considered to be “groundbreaking” at the time, with its “in-cockpit” view. The game was ported to many different computer platforms, including the Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Apple II, Atari ST, Commodore 64, PC-88, and ZX Spectrum.

Three years later, Dynamix (through Electronic Arts) released Skyfox II for the Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64, and DOS machines. Although it did not get quite as high reviews as the first Skyfox, it was still a great game.

I have owned this copy of Skyfox II for more than 20 years now. For what it’s worth, I’m still terrible at the game.
