Harrier Attack 30th Anniversary Challenge [Amstrad CPC] IN COLOUR!

The Speccy/Amstrad 'get shot 'em up' classic enters its third decade in existence sometime this year. To celebrate, Harry Yack attempts to do something he never quite managed in the early to mid-Nineties: eat a whole five finger Kit Kat. Indeed, such things weren't invented back then (I think - someone will be along to confirm it after lunch).

To make things a *bit* more interesting, while Mr Yack stuffs his gob with melted wafer there's free* footage of some game or other. I dunno; I forgot all about it because this was recorded some time in late 2012, possibly.

Apologies for frame skip and slurring. My computer was drunk and my brain fell out, OK?

From the (now sadly defunct) official Durell website:
"Harrier Attack was a resounding success for Durell, selling over 250,000 copies in total, worldwide, and becoming Durell's number one best seller."
HY addendum: Alan Sugar gave away a further nine billion copies of the game as free software bundled with the Amstrad CPC464.

Happy birthday, Harrier Attack, you owd get.
