Hmm, possibly. That name doesn't ring any bells, but I can't guarantee I
ever knew the correct name anyway :-)

I've seen various games on other platforms which had the same sort of
concept (Harrier Attack on the speccy springs to mind), but I remember
the graphics on this C64 game being particularly good and it being later
on in the evolution of such games on the 80's 8-bit machines, probably
around 1984 or so.

Looking at the screenshots of Raid over Moscow, I really can't remember
if the cityscape in the game I'm thinking of was forced-perspective or
just a side-on view. Grumble grumble...

I'll collect any names people come up with together though and pass them
all on to this guy anyway as there's always a chance I'm not thinking of
the same game that he is!
