[1] Based on the classic strategy text "The Art of War", written by Sun Tzu circa 400 B.C.

[2] Game includes Amiga reference docs on-disk (see "ReadMe.txt" on disk 1) and a built-in campaign editor. Additionally, the game supports different keymaps (to change from the GB default refer to "ReadMe.txt" on disk 1), savegames and PAL/NTSC screenmodes.

[3] The NTSC version of ANCIENT ART OF WAR IN THE SKIES may be activated by double-clicking the
"60Hz Screen Stretcher" icon on disk 1, but publisher MicroProse warned in the on-disk docs that this software solution may not work on all Amiga set-ups and might require the ECS chipset and a monitor.

[4] According to the on-disk docs, the "Game Options" clipboard in-game displays an option to turn off the joystick. However, clicking on it doesn't do anything as it is a leftover option from the original PC version that wasn't removed.
