Dear Readers, welcome to our live coverage of Winter Games! The organisers could not have chosen a better day for the event: Look at that Čerenkov blue sky, ever so slightly marred by small cloudy squares of brilliant white! The sight is even clear enough to catch a glimpse of the far away Purple Peaks.
Just now a runner enters the stadium with the Olympic torch and climbs the steps up to light the fire. But what‘s that? His skin is blue with cold! Has nobody told that poor man that a sleeveless shirt might be a little bit too much on the cool side? Now the Epyx-fire blazes up and the white doves are set free. Endless swarms of them fly over the crowds in this grandest of opening ceremonies.
First, an important word of warning: If you don't own a decent analogue joystick (and have it ready), don't bother with this game! Keyboard controls exist, but they are totally useless and will prevent any fun from developing. Now that this is off the table, what is Flight Unlimited? How did they attempt to fill the gameplay/goal void which usually plagues civilian flight simulators? First, you have to understand that rather than simulating a regular aircraft, this game is about aerial-acrobatics. If you think looping, you've got the right idea (though that is, of course, not the only maneuver you will perform).
