Superbomber (or simply Bomber) was included as a free game, with both BasicAlly and RAM disk and Spooler from Talent Computer Systems.

Written by Eddy Yeung, this was said to be "the fastest QL game".

Featuring excellent graphics you have to fly through a series of caverns avoiding the ground to air missiles and destroying alien spaceships trying to shoot you down. You can refuel by destroying a fuel depot.

Interestingly, if you hold down the space bar (fire), you shoot horizontal bullets, however, to drop bombs you have to release it, so forcing you to make rapid presses of the space bar or fire button on a QL joystick.

This probably formed the inspiration for Deathstrike which is very similar in look and feel.
