Sonic Wings is an intense vertical shooter by Video system and conversion of their own arcade game originally released in 1992. Four elite pilots from around the globe are called upon to take part in an anti-terrorist military operation and seven large enemy installations and weapons must be destroyed. Players can pick one of four nationalities to fulfill their missions - United States, Japan, England and Sweden. Each pilot comes with his own plane and each one of them is based on real fighters such as the F-14 Tomcat, Tornado IDS or AJ-37. They also feature their own handling characteristics and special weapons. The weapons system is rather simple and consist of one main upgrade-able Vulcan gun (and secondary missiles) and a set of bomb-attacks capable of obliterating most of the objects on screen. A maximum of four bombs can be carried at once and each weapon can be upgraded four times - however, the highest power-up level only lasts for a short period of time. The game counts a total of seven stages, three of which are played first and in a random order. A two simultaneous player mode is also available and a friend can join the party at any time.
