Carl Williams writes, "New Commodore 64 games are coming fairly frequently thanks to dedicated homebrew developers. One such new game, Aviator Arcade, foregoes the side scrolling action that we usually see from the homebrew community. Aviator Arcade is more in tune with Twin Cobra (Sega Genesis) and Tiger Heli (Nintendo NES). Everything is viewed from above as the level scrolls from the top of the screen to the bottom. Aviator Arcade tells a story that would be close to that of Red Dawn, had the high schoolers been equipped with a battle helicopter."
