Well, what can I say.  I've seen most Hi-Tec games before, but
this one I don't recall ever seeing.  For budget games, they are
not too bad, this is one of the better ones (released at the same time
as Warzone/Core Design), certainly better than a lot of full price

The protection system was also quite competant for a budget game.

16 different Sync's used, different for  every single track, and then 
there was a clever little depack as it loaded certain game files.  
Making a system friendly imager took longer than I anticipated! Had it 
simply been a file imager, it would have taken seconds, but then there 
is the issue of compatibility.  Apologies for the lengthy install 
process.... you only have to do it the once, so quit moaning! :)

Thanks for Tonys patience with doing this game, but any future
Hi-Tec games carrying this same protection will be sorted a lot sooner
thanks to this game.

On the titlescreen, type 'COWABUNGA' for infinite lives.  Hold down the 
left mouse button before the Blazing Thunder logo screen fades out for
infinite bombs.
Kindest Regards, Galahad & Frank
