Dambusters is a work of genius for a console as early as the colecovision, it may be dim and uncolorful un-like many games of this genre but it involves precision flying north, east, south and west by following a small compass to the right of the screen. By scrolling through numbers 1 to 6 other menus are noticed showing everything from maps, enemie locations, altitude and a screen which sole purpose is for gunning down "dams" as the title suggests.

This is a tricky sim to take control of, the controls are rather rugged to the touch and hard to navigate. Therefore practise is needed to advance in skill. When you aquire this skill on the ameature level withch is nothing but a fly-araund-aimlessly exerrcise you can take hold of the proffesional made. This is the one with added menus. All this adds up to destrol all dams to finish the mission; like may games points are added for speed and time and high scores = more tries.
