Ultimate Air Combat (NES)
|Ultimate Air Combat|
Ultimate Air Combat (known as Aces: Iron Eagle III in Japan) is a semi-realistic combat flight simulator developed and published by Activision for the Nintendo Entertainment System/Family Computer. Having relatively good graphics for the console, Ultimate Air Combat differs from other similar games by having both a cockpit view and an isometric view throughout the missions.
The game seems to be set in the near future due to some of the highly advanced weapons systems but modern-day planes. In Japan, the game is known as Aces: Iron Eagle III and is barely based on the film of the same name (as both involved aircraft).
This is the only of two games that were developed internally by Activision for the NES, instead of outsourcing development to other companies, the other one was Galaxy 5000: Racing in the 51st Century.

For 1992, Richard Miles Boogar did a good job writing this simple soundtrack, with additional music support from Matthew Berardo of Bubsy fame. Both of them created MIDI files, which was implemented into Activision's NES driver.
There are issues with the timing of this recording.

Ripping NES music is an arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site. The music was recorded in Game Emu Player for foobar2000.
The game outputs to the RP2A03 in North America and Japan and RP2A07 in Europe. The DPCM channel is used for sound effects.
