Birds of Prey

(IBM-PC, Commodore Amiga) (Electronic Arts)

A state-of-the-art flight simulator, providing accurate simulation of more than 40 different fighter aircraft. The project was some five years late when I became involved (at Argonaut)! Getting it shipped was a huge priority not only for Argonaut, but for their publisher, the American company Electronic Arts. Not only was I able to code release the troubled lead Amiga sku, but bring out a PC version (by subcontracting the work to Chris Sawyer, now a best selling programmer in his own right, with the "Railroad Tycoon" series). The project was a huge commercial success attaining number one sales positions in Europe and North America
