[1] AIR WARRIOR was ambitiously released as the world's first online multiplayer, multiplatform combat simulator for Amiga, Macintosh, Atari ST and PC in 1988. The first physical retail release of the game on disk came in 1990 and basically served as a conduit to the online multiplayer version. Specifically, it was intended for use with a modem (at least 1200 baud, but preferably 2400 or 9600 baud or faster) to dial-up dedicated online multiplayer services that existed in various countries in the 1980s/90s (e.g. GEnie, Delphi, CRIS, AOL, CompuServe, Earthlink, Gamestorm and Compulink in the USA; On-Line Entertainment and Connect Online in the UK; OzEmail in Australia).

Unfortunately, these services ceased long ago in the late 1990s and online mutiplayer gameplay is no longer possible. The game, however, can be played offline from disk, but only solo flights are possible and much of the graphical detail witnessed in online multiplayer combat is absent.

[2] Min. Requirements (V2.5a): 512k ram.
Recommended (V2.5a): 1MB ram or more (for use of graphic modes above standard low-res and/or use of digital sound or customised sound files created by players using sound digitisers).

Min. Requirements (V2.9c): Workbench 1.3/2.x, 1MB chip/2MB fastram (possibly less memory in degraded graphics modes), hard drive (due to the very large size of the terrain file).
Recommended (V2.9c): 68020 CPU or faster (for optimised gameplay), AGA chipset (for better performance in hires mode), 1MB chip/2MB fastram or more, hard drive.

[3] Magazine Publisher: New Computer Express no. 149, 21-Sept-1991 [tri-format (Amiga/ST/PC) coverdisk #3]

[4] Game features joystick (analogue, digital)/mouse/keyboard control and support for low-res (standard/interlace modes), medium resolution & hires picture screens and artwork views. Additionally, the game supports digital sound and the creation of customised sound files by players using sound digitisers (see 'readme.2.5a' file on disk 1).

[5] Original release contents include a large A1 game poster with a map of the European theatre on the reverse side, as well as an On-line Entertainment flight connect modem offer.

[6] A Danish budget version of AIR WARRIOR with localised in-game menus was released by Euro Power Pack.
