There's a rumor that Tod Frye was on drugs when he developed this.  I dunno if that's true, but I have to wonder why he made the ship look like a pair of wings instead of a standard sprite?

Yep, that's pretty intriguing, he could just make a simple sprite of the ship. And what are those "ground objects" you can shoot? Are they supposed to be tanks? They kind of look like snakes or flying birds. Pretty strange port, indeed.

Hence the reason it was never released.  At least we had the Atari 7800 version.
