Personal review
"Blue Lightning's" gameplay is similar to Afterburner. The game has impressive graphics for a handheld game and showed the graphical superiority of the Lynx when compared to the Game Boy (not that it helped the system much...). Also the sound effects are pretty well done. I missed music during the missions though. If you like this kind of shooting game then you will be very pleased with Blue Lightning.

Official description
Flight Command chose you to fly the top secret Blue Lightning combat jet on its first flight. You finished last at flight school so they have nothing to lose.
Trails of smoke warn of oncoming enemy missiles. A few quick barrel rolls and you avoid the missiles. Now here come the jets! With guns blazing you fly into the thick of the enemy formation.
If you can somehow complete nine crucial missions which combine the explosive action of combat with the quiet stealth of night flight, you'll be a hero. If you fail, no one will even remember your name.
