When you climb into the cockpit of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, get set for the "flight of your life" as the powerful FALCON AT takes you streaking across the sky at Mach 2. Accurate weapons system, head-up-displays, cockpit controls, and overall flight characteristics make this ultimate in simulations. The enemy MiGs you encounter are resourceful and very skilled.
Whether you are a novice pilot or a real "top gun," FALCON AT is for you! 3-D graphic images of buildings, forests, freeways, and bridges flash by as you fly at the speed of sound only 150 feet above the deck. Take out bridges, power stations, tanks, airfields and SAM sites.
"Sweaty palms" and a pounding heart are normal occurrences during dogfight engagements in FALCON AT. Mastering the most effective use of your heat-seeking missiles. Maverick missiles, bombs, and cannon systems will determine your destiny. The MiG-21 and MiG-29 planes will be merciless, as will the opposing pilots you challenge in head-to-head mode.

Falcon AT is a game that is almost thirty years old, and sadly yes, nothing has changed since then, heck, the game requires you to use DOSBox emulator or have dos installed as your operating system. I don't really see the reason why to get such an old game without feeling nostalgic about it. So if you haven't played this game when it was released really long time ago I doubt you will find anything interesting here.
Falcon AT is a DOS flight simulator that released in 1988. An excellent game for its time when it came to graphics (being one of the first flight sims to use EGA graphics, allowing you to see your plane in different view modes), gameplay, and realism, as was common there was little in the way of sound and what there was could end up getting annoying. Dying after completing a mission and seeing, "You get your ribbon but unfortunately you were killed in action," was always amusing. The only real reason to play this now is nostalgia and wanting to relieve those old memories, you are going to be able to find better things that are more modern and even the sequel to this and its Gold edition are going to be a better option if you were looking to play an old flight simulator with more content and realistic planes.
