Bandits at 3 O'Clock Remake by Retrorookies

This is a remake of an old Acorn Electron / BBC Micro game, It's a simple one or two-player dogfighting game where your only controls are up and down, shoot or drop bomb. It has a few problems - sometimes you nosedive for no apparent reason (though this could just be me!), the keys aren't always responsive enough and one of the sound effects reverberates horribly - but it's still quite a fun game, especially in two-player mode. Quite tricky to master, too.

From the RetroRemakes 2008 Competition Showcase.

The nosedive seems to be to stop you from flying too high. Otherwise you would go off the screen.

You could well be right. I got the hang of it a bit more after I'd posted this!
