This game arrived in the cave during this good in video!

We take Combat Lynx by Durell Software for a spin on the C64. A 1984 release which is playable on keyboard, but really demands 2 joysticks to master as I find out during an appalling display of helicopter piloting.

Positives: Free roaming psuedo 3D with contorted landscapes, and in depth controls for flight and weapons systems

Negatives: Need some serious time put into it to master it even on the easiest level. Probably a lot easier with two joysticks however.

Impressive stuff for 1984.
