ROM of Prototype Nintendo NES Flight Simulator 'Chuck Yeager's Fighter Combat' Released For Download

Chuck-Yeagers-Fighter-Combat-Nintendo-NES-ROMAfter recently selling a limited run of reproduction cartridges containing an unreleased Nintendo NES flight-sim, the owners of this prototype code have decided to release the game's ROM online for everyone to enjoy. So buckle in and get ready to experience the thrill of the skies with Chuck Yeager's Fighter Combat.

Just to recap, nearly four years ago a prototype cartridge containing Chuck Yeager's Fighter Combat flew onto eBay. After selling for $2,700, this one-of-a-kind cartridge containing an unfinished video game ended up in the hands of a duo of software preservationists. This team of gamers eventually got round to selling a limited run of 150 reproduction cartridges containing the game's code, and have finally followed through on their original plan to release the game's ROM once the 150 carts were sold out.

The ROM file of Chuck Yeager's Fighter Combat can now be downloaded from the NintendoAge forums (login required) and it's one all retro gamers should check out. Believe it or not but this impressive 8-bit feat offers a speech synthesis appearance from Chuck Yeager himself, along with some rather advanced visuals for Nintendo's early home console.
