F/A-18 Interceptor is a combat flight simulator released for the Commodore Amiga in 1988. It is widely known for its use of 3D graphics and arcade-style gameplay.
The player mainly flies the F/A-18 Hornet, but the F-16 Fighting Falcon is also available for aerobatics, free flight and the first mission.
The game is set in the San Francisco Bay Area. Notable landmarks include the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge and Alcatraz Island. The Electronic Arts headquarters in San Mateo are also depicted.
If you had more than 512KB ram, you could hear a theme song from Dave Warhol which resembles the Top Gun Anthem from Harold Faltermeyer and Steve Stevens. This was at the request of programmer/designer Robert "Bob" Dinnerman, who asked sound effects engineer Dave Warhol to convey the atmosphere of that particular song from the movie Top Gun.
There were bugs left in the game were you could land on the water or upside down on a carrier.
Placed as an Easter egg, you can find the Electronic Arts Headquarters on the San Francisco map.
