Aerial Assault is a side-scrolling game where you control a jet and shoot down the onslaught of enemy jets and such that come your way. Overall, the gameplay is sound, the graphics are good, and the game feels very professional.
However, this is not a perfect game. I have experienced a number of admittedly minor bugs, but bugs nonetheless. In particular I have noticed a recurring phenomenon where an enemy ship suddenly appears right in front of you and kills you. Also, the game is only one short level, and is exactly the same every time you play it. This is not all that bad, as you can play the game at different speeds and challenge yourself to get a really high-score, and the game itself tends to be very difficult, so you will be compelled to try again and again to beat the game.
Overall, this game has great graphics, and a lot of animations that add to the visual effect, such as an ocean below you with mountains in the background and boats on the seas. This is a fun game, and worth the download for anyone who plays games on the 89. It may not be the best game, but it is fun, and one of the better simple games available for the 89. Definitely worth trying.
