I played Desert Strike quite extensively on my Amiga. I was never great at Action games, but these missions were just designed very fairly, so that they could actually be won with some careful planning. Just a pity that there were only four of them.
Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

Great game, and i'm still not sure which is better, this or Jungle Strike.. they were made slightly different, but surprisingly neither one outhrows another. Hm...
Cheer up! Remember the less you have, the more there is to get.

In Desert Strike you are the pilot of a chopper in the Middle East, your main objective being to take out a madman trying to take over the world. You accomplish this by achieving your mission goals, which are laid out prior to each mission and vary from destroying buildings and vehicles to capturing enemies to escorting other vehicles. Not only do you have to worry about being shot down, you can also lose ammo or run out of fuel, both of which can be corrected by collecting ammo crates and gas drums, respectively.
