Airheart is Dan Gorlin‘s predecessor to/prototype of the brilliant Typhoon Thompson and was first released for the Apple II by Broderbund in 1986.
It features the same sea-skimming gameplay as its more famous 1989 sequel and is a great example of what the Apple II is capable of.
Airheart – like Typhoon Thompson – is all about “feel”, and Gorlin certainly knew how to put good ‘feel’ into his games.
Airheart is basically a simple collect ’em up, with some shooting. It’s more tactical than a mindless shooter though.
