Before taking to the skies, players select from a variety of zany aviator characters and an assortment of nostalgic aircraft. Competition ensues through an array of aerial combat missions against the computer, or with up to three additional players using the Game Boys link feature. Gamers fly in first-person 3-D perspective as they execute a variety of realistic flight maneuvers including barrel and aileron rolls through levels of high-flying adventure. Players must avoid attack from ground-based anti-aircraft batteries while collecting a variety of bonus balloons as they keep watch over the skies from six unique cockpit-based views.
