This Sublogic game is one of the earliest flight sims known to man with an awe-inspiring title. Jet allowed you to fly an F-16 and an F/A-18, and you could fly off of a carrier. Although very primitive by today's standards, the game was revolutionary for its time, with as much real-world physics as would fit on a single 5.25" 360KB disk. The Commodore 64 version, naturally, was superior to the PC version due to a much more extensive color palette than the 4-color CGA. Developed by Charles Guy using Bruce Artwick's technology, Jet has the interesting feature of being able to run Scenery Disks developed for Microsoft's Flight Simulator. When the game was released, it was the be-all and end-all with ground-breaking elements like remote views, guided missiles, etc. For those who want to know where flight sims came from: this is their great-grandfather :)
