A partly complete port of Raid Over Moscow (using Adrian Cumming’s art and coded in Blitz Basic) has been zoned, with more than a few caveats:
- Only a few levels. Hangar, Defence and Map screens are done. It’s completely missing the Scrolling Approach, Kremlin, Reactor and end cut scene.
- Completely not optimized. There’s no usage of hardware sprites, text rendering is done much more often than actually needed etc. As such, the Hangar screen runs sluggishly on a 68000 (it’s OK on a 68020).
- No sound effects
- Done within extremely tight time constraints during the gamedev event I’m at this weekend, so it’s very unrefined.
If there’s any demand I may finish it off one day.
ADF Image, CD32 ISO and the basic files are included.
Edit: Forgot to mention, at this stage you need a two button pad (no keyboard support).
Button 1: Shoot. Climb in the Hangar scene.
Button 2: Switch to Hangar from the Map scene. Open doors in Hangar.
The first Raid Over Moscow Remake was up thanks to Andrew Layden’s job , thank you very much from all the 80’s cold war CBM people!!! Cutting the high grass , You can find it here ,
and twice thanks for adding the left ctrl key as fire.
Quite excellent graphic , a bit harsh not playing with joypad but who knows ,
Layden could add a day also that , just update us .
YF-23 Raid Over Moscow Remake
Brief History of Raid Over Moscow Jet and its connection to 23 :
Based on the Northrop/McDonnell Douglas YF-23
which was a prototype fighter aircraft designed for the United States Air Force.
YF-23 was a finalist in the U.S.Air Force’s Advanced Tactical Fighter competition.
Two YF-23s were built and were nicknamed “Black Widow II” and “Gray Ghost”, respectively.
The YF-23 lost the contest to the Lockheed YF-22,
which entered production as the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.
And hmn.. We found out the amiga version never released of R.O.M.

At the end , you can download the longplay video from the following ed2k links :
and the remake,in case the bandwidth on Layden’s page wouldn’t be enough:
US Air Force / NASA Helicopter simulator was powered
by Commodore Amiga
In the 80’s the often over looked computer Amiga helped companies and governments develop much cheaper and better solutions to computer problems/needs. Just another quick clip that demonstrates this. watch the whole video here https://archive.org/details/amiga_2
