Game Title:
Silent Thunder: A-10 Tank Killer II
Release Date: xx-xx-1996
Release Number: 1
Series: Dynamix Simulations

Description: Silent Thunder is the sequel to A-10 Tank Killer, which was released 6 years earlier. It only simulates one aircraft - the Fairchild-Republic A-10A Thunderbolt II, a very powerful anti tank aircraft developed for the US Air Force in the 1970ies. The simulation of it is pretty accurate, 10 weapons are available and a lot of friendly and enemy aircrafts and ground vehicles. 24 missions can be flown.   (From Mobygames description)

Alternate Releases:

Roberta Williams, who designed Sierra's first game, Mystery House in 1980, felt it was time to write another murder mystery which lived up to the computer capabilities of the late eighties. Mystery House, which was put on public domain in 1988, was the first computer game ever with graphics, but it lacked colors, animation and sound. The Colonel's Bequest was developed, using EGA graphics, Sierra's SCI engine, sound and a music score, as well as featuring a deeper plot and more detailed character descriptions.

The game has a sequel, The Dagger of Amon Ra, which is also the last Laura Bow game. Both games are also included in the 1997 King's Quest Collection and the Roberta Williams Anthology. Although the original release of The Colonel's Bequest can still relatively easily be found on online auctions, a complete original game is considered as a true collector's item, as it contains many goodies which are often missing from second-hand sales, particularly the Laura Bow pen and notebook. The games copyright protection is also quite original: the gamer needs to use a magnifying glass (included in the box) to identify a fingerprint on the game screen.
