Atari: Sky Raider
Werbetext (englisch)
Sky Raider is an all new idea in video action strategy games. Three-dimensional visual effects and realistic sound effects literally puts the pilot in command of his own jet bomber.

The realism of actual flight.
A unique new engineering concept presents the player with a bird's-eye view of continuously moving video terrain passing below. The simulation of flight is realistic, and irresistible! The "mission" is to destroy strategic targets that appear at random in the terrain as it passes under the aircraft. Targets include patriling enemy Airplanes, scoring 800 points: Oil Tanks, worth 450 points; Bridges, worth 450; Cities, worth 450; and Electric Power Towers, scoring 350 points.

Built-in Incentive.
Pilots control Sky Raider's speed, zero in the bombsight and release missiles to destroy as many targets as possible within pre-set game time limits. To add even more incentive, the previously gaine highest score is displayes on the monitor.

More Options for extra profit… extra player challenge.
Game Time. Sky Raider can be set for 60, 80, 100, or 120 seconds per game.
Extended Play. Bonus play can be awarded for achieving pre-set point levels corresponding to each game-time increment.
Four languages. Operators may select English, French, German or Spanish video message presentations.
Coinage. 16 optional coin modes including 1 or 2 plays per coin, or 2 coins per play.
