Top Gun Guts and Glory brings top simulator action to the small screen! You can choose from four top fighters like the F-14, F-16, Mig-29 and the Stealth Fighter. Battle through four tough missions to reach the final stronghold. Choose from many powerful weapons to take on the attacking fighter squadrons!
After each mission you must land on an aircraft carrier to prepare for the next mission!
This type of game just shouldn't have been attempted. While the basics of the game's engine are impressive, overall this game just doesn't stack up. It tries to be something that is next to impossible to be due to the limitations of the hardware. If you're dying for a portable flight sim, however, go for it.
Wow, a flight simulator for the GameBoy! It sounds great on paper but doesn't quite measure up to expectations once you try it. This is mainly due to the limitations of the system rather than the inability of the cart to perform. Everything is there, but you really need a lot of imagination to picture yourself in an aircraft.
It is hard to believe that someone has actually brought a flight simulator onto the GameBoy, but leave it to the wizards at Konami to do the impossible! While the graphics and sounds are not great, this cart does have a good level of challenge and action. It is good for the GameBoy, but that doesn't say much.
Top Gun on GameBoy? Really? Well, I suppose that it had to happen. Actually, it is a decent game (expected of course, the graphics) with good action. The simulations are okay and don't deserve any awards but for on the go, it will do. Let's leave B&W for games that don't suffer from it, like Pong (I'm waiting for that too).

Konami now brings us its famous simulator on the GameBoy. Top Gun: Guts and Glory, is the newest in a series of awesome titles. Following in the footsteps of its big brothers, Top Gun and Top Gun 2 on the NES, this brings the same game play to the small screen. Yet, this time, though, you can choose from four different fighters. The F-14 Tomcat, a Mig-29, a F-16 Falcon or the Stealth Fighter. Take on some of the toughest of the tough jet fighters. The action gets very intense; however, when you get to the real combat scenes. It is the same action you remember from the NES versions.
Battle your way through four dangerous missions until you reach the core of the enemy stronghold. Yet, you cannot expect to attack the enemy's headquarters without knowing how to fly your aircraft. So, go into the training mode and try the one-on-one combat and bombing runs. These will get your skills up to par, so you can take on some tougher enemies.
Another important factor contributing to your success is being able to land the fighter on an aircraft carrier. It takes a little practice, but for fans of the NES versions, it is worth it. Top Gun: Guts and Glory is on its way to a GameBoy near you!
