Top Gun: Danger Zone is a fully licensed title, filled with characters and action sequences from the famous Tom Cruise movie from the middle eighties. Top Gun: Danger Zone was developed by Distinctive Software, Inc. and published by Konami, Inc. It was released in 1991 for play only on the personal computer running the MS DOS operating system. Top Gun: Danger Zone is a flight simulation.
The fact that Top Gun: Danger Zone was not published until 1991, five years after the hit movie was released, goes to show the popularity of this title in all of its forms.
In the case of this game, players tend to love the unique setting of the time and have fun playing in the desert dogfighting situations. The setting of Top Gun: Danger Zone is an aircraft carrier, the USS Brigham, which is stationed off the coast of Libya in the Middle East. It houses F-14 Tomcats and F-18 Hornets, and you can choose to fly either one or the other jet.
There are eight missions to complete, and you can also compete in the Top Gun Challenge Board where you challenge other pilots to one on one dogfights. This is the Top Gun: Danger Zone form of practice. Once you enter the real missions, you will have to clear
airspace, intercept, escort and so forth. In the practice mode, you can play against another person or the computer controlled enemy plane.
