The arcade hit comes home! Tengen's Steel Talons made waves in the arcade world by providing a shockingly realistic helicopter flight model, polygon graphics, and a force-feedback seat! Two modes of play ensured that both hardcore gamers and newbie pilots could take to the air and rain down death from above against enemy tanks, trucks, and helicopters. Steel Talons had more in common with early military flight sims than with a game like Afterburner, and the Lynx version is no exception.
In one of the most astounding ports in the history of hand-held gaming, Tengen has retained the arcade game's look and feel by creating an amazing polygon engine on the Atari Lynx. You'll be able to sail through the clouds and dart through detailed canyons while taking in the smooth visuals and basking in the complex, flight sim-caliber gameplay - all on a handheld! Will wonders never cease... ~ Colin Williamson, All Game Guide
