    One of my favorite games for the NES. Every level has 2 parts: the first is a space shooter, the second floating around the air fortress in a jet pak shooting at robots. You have unlimited ammo with the regular gun but you have to conserve your bombs as you'll need them to destroy the power supply for the air fortress & then move onto the next level. Just remember to get to your escape pod quickly before the whole place explodes!The graphics are excellent for an 8-bit system, and the controls are so smooth as long as you have a good controller (don't get the "dogbone" controller, use original NES or the Hyperkin "Cadet" premium controller.) Gameplay is very fun but gets more challenging with each level. You have unlimited continues and you get a password so you can pick it up where you left off.I've only made it to the fifth air fortress - I'm soooo glad I found this game I had forgotten about it. As soon as I started playing it I instantly knew what it was and was overjoyed that I had found it again. Yes, it's classic retro nostalgia but it's also just a really good game.

    I already have a more full review on my blog, "What They Call Games", but here's the gist of Air Fortress:There are two parts to each level, a space shooter part and an on-foot in the air fortress part. During the shooter part, you must survive and collect bubbles of E and B (eggs and bacon) which you will use to complete the second part. Once inside the air fortress, which is really more like a space fortress, you must find the core (which looks like the Eye of Sauron), destroy it, and escape the fortress before it explodes with you inside. It's pretty nifty because you have a jetpack and whenever you shoot, there is realistic kickback. Every movement and action uses up some of your E, but this recharges if you stay still. Getting hit decreases your maximum E and if you hit 0, you die. The levels get rapidly harder until, at about level 5 or 6, they are nearly impossible. If somehow you are able to beat all 8 levels, there are second quest versions of each of them as well. Thankfully, there is a password feature so you don't have to start from the beginning each time.And that's about all there is to Air Fortress. For the price of $4, I'd say it was well worth it.

    I'd say Air Fortress is a great game that has a few flaws. I'll go ahead and list what I consider flaws right now to get them out of the way.- This game is WAY too long for what it is. I almost never complain that an NES game is too long but this one comes close. The action just doesn't offer enough variety to warrant a quest that takes nearly 3 hours (or more depending how many lives you lose).- There's no boss fights. Boss fights are important for two reasons. It means there's something to look forward to when I reach the end of a level for one thing, but also bosses help to take away from the monotonousness. Without them the air fortresses blend together so it's hard to tell which ones stand out as the best, or which ones stand out at all.- When you lose in the air fortress, you have to return to the previous Gradius style stage (called the air base). You should have been taken to the beginning of the air fortress stage instead. Losing and returning to the previous air base stage means an extra few minutes of playtime just to get back to where you were in the air fortress. You could lose up to 10 minutes of progress if you lose a life near the very end of an air fortress. At least the game has a very simple password system.- The enemy variety never changes throughout the game. Okay so at the very end you're introduced to a Rosie (from the Jetsons) looking thing that shoots yellow laser balls, but that's about it.- Enemies lack personality. This is what makes th.

    This game provides an impressive amount of atmosphere for a primitive NES game. The environments have simple graphics and colors but can be immersive with their maze-like designs. You fight through an army of space enemies, search through each air fortress for its core, destroy it, and escape before the air fortress explodes. It does get insanely difficult, but feels gripping and satisfying. Regarding the use of atmosphere, it shines most after you have destroyed a fortress core. The lighting dims, a VERY creepy 8-bit tune starts playing, and as you begin to run out of time the screen begins to shake and rumble, and eventually the light begins to fade in and out. It seemed like something you'd see in a Metroid game, it definitely intensifies your attempt to escape. The music is nicely done, albeit a bit repetitive. I'd say give this game a try, if you're up for the challenge.If my research is correct, this game had a limited release in the US, so I'd recommend you pick it up while it's on the cheap.
