Kennedy Approach-Red Storm Rising Remake

2009-02-01 Kennedy Approach v1.92 released !!
>Kennedy Approach is (or was) an ATC simulation game that first appeared on the C64 back in the eighties. It was the first game to use a speech engine (computer generated voice) which was quite an achievement for a 64kb game. It was probably the first ever realtime strategy game (RTS).
The game was also available on the Atari home computer and later on the Amiga. I’ve been waiting for a remake that never came. And eventually, I just made it myself.
And that’s what these pages are about: the Kennedy Approach remake for (windows) pc.
There are a lot of simular games (see links), however my remake looks the same, hears the same and plays the same as the original C64 version.
If you’re an Atari fan, you probably want the Atari colors, which is possible by changing the color scheme found in the ini file created by Kennedy Approach. There is a (default) C64 scheme (obviously!) and an Atari scheme.
