Blue Lightning 

 

I hope you were able to participate with the Twitch live stream I did where I played the Blue Lightning video game on the Evercade system. Blue Lightning is also on the Atari Lynx. This hand held video game is an arcade air fighter. We take out a jet and shoot all of the enemies trying to destroy us. This can be an array of different things ranging from other planes to ground defenses.

Blue Lightning has the military feel to it. We have a limited number of missiles in Blue Lightning. We do not have any limits on our machine guns. We have five lives while we are completing missions within Blue Lightning. I loved the landing sequences in Blue Lightning personally. Thankfully the game took care of the landing and taking off for me. I appreciate that. Microsoft Flight Simulator taught me how hard it is to land and aircraft.

The graphics scroll nicely in Blue Lightning. The plane looks really good. I loved moving the plan around to get a god look at it while playing Blue Lightning. Yes the plane is blue and it brings the lighting to the enemy troops. Flying around is very easy and simple within Blue Lightning. I learned to avoid missiles from the enemy equipment while playing Blue Lightning on the Evercade. I personally feel the Evercade is the better way to play Atari Lynx video games.

The biggest issue families will have with Blue Lightning is the violence. We are shooting an insane number of objects within Blue Lightning. I felt like I was single handedly invading an evil country and taking out their defenses. There would be few defenses left for that country after I played Blue Lightning. I did not get all of their planes or defenses either. I was unable to take all of them out. Blue Lightning lets players finish the level without removing all of the enemy equipment. I appreciate that leniency.

All in all I enjoyed my time with Blue Lightning. This arcade shooter reminds me of plenty of games in the past. Blue Lightning does not try to be a simulation. Blue Lightning does not try to be completely accurate. Blue Lightning challenges you to stay alive and shoot as much as you can. I learned to not always be on offense because missiles can come from a plethora of different places.
