Year: 1989
Developer: Imagineering

Stealth ATF is a stealth fighter video game released by Activision in 1989 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The object of the game is to take out aircraft that are trying to destroy the player's stealth fighter. The game supports up to two players.

It is known for being the first title Imagineering ever developed for the NES, nearly two full months before A Boy and His Blob came out, and it was only made by a handful of developers: designer/programmer Rob Harris, director Garry Kitchen, graphics by Jesse Kapilli, and additional programming by Garry and Dan Kitchen, with music and sound contracted by Activision's own audio guy Russell Lieblich.
