Tomahawk - Original Edition

Tomahawk is a real-time flight simulation based upon the Hughes AH-64A APACHE Advanced Attack helicopter. Features include 3D real-world views with buildings, trees, mountains, tanks and helicopters.......


This is the original Digital Integration release with the infamous Lenslock copy right protection device.

A plastic lens that required the user to hold it up against a square on the tv screen, adjust the image seen through it, until OK could be seen clearly, then the game would proceed, if the player got the image wrong, the game would simply reset to the command prompt.

 Unfortunately, the lens lock was flawed in that it was very difficult to use on portable TV systems, that an awful lot of gamers were using in the 1980's.

 Used by digital integration and Firebird, this was a much disliked way of protecting games, that actually seemed to punish legitimate users.
