A.S.P. Air Strike Patrol
|A.S.P. Air Strike Patrol|
Also known as: Desert Fighter (EU), Desert Fighter: Suna no Arashi Sakusen (JP)
An isometric building bombing game with planes flown by venomous Egyptian cobras. Or people. Can't remember, really.
Is there a more legit way (aside from the debug menu) to access these? Cheat code, maybe?
