Description from the packaging.

In the June of 1915 on the continent of Europe, World War I was raging. The Allies were trying to hold onto Europe and the Royal Air Force was a key weapon thrown against the Axis powers.

On the 19th of June while flying on a reconnaissance mission, Max Chatsworth watched as his entire squadron was cut to ribbons by enemy planes. On that day he personally shot down seven fighters. When he returned to base he vowed to avenge the death of his comrades. The following month he shot down 13 more enemy planes.

The Axis offered the Blue Max decoration- the highest flying medal- to any pilot who would shoot down Max Chatsworth. From then on his mates called Chatsworth "the Blue Max."

And now you are Blue Max of the R.A.F. in command of a biplane fighter/bomber. Your mission is to pulverize the enemy's airfields and bridges and to destroy as many enemy fighters as possible.

From out of the sun, enemy planes dive and attack, machine guns chattering. From the ground, huge guns boom their deadly welcome.

You smile grimly to yourself as another bird trails a smoking plume to the ground.

Bombs away and God save the King!
