Apache Strike is a flight simulator, where you are flying over the city streets on Apache helicopter and fighting against different technic (tanks, another helicopters, etc.)

Contrary to the C64 and DOS releases (released about two years later), this game has much better gameplay, sound (it even had a speech) and sprites (although it was only black and white). Also, this verion use third-person view, although C64 and DOS use first-person. Unfortunatelly, arranger couldn't use full Macintosh sound capabilities, so Commodore version of this tune is much better.

Like the other releases, this game use good real 3D engine, better, than C64 version, but DOS version was better than MAC in some parts.

The game's only song is the Apache Strike Theme which plays at the the title screen, and sounds to be a combination of the Airwolf Main Theme and Vultan's Theme (Attack of the Hawk Men).
