Top Gun is a game released to the NES, based on the popular film of the same name. In the game, the user flies an F-14 Tomcat and battles enemy fighters while completing various missions. A sequel, known as "The Second Mission", was released later on. A game of the same name was also released to the Nintendo DS. Top Gun for the NES sold originally over 2 million copies.
The game is especially noted for its unfair carrier landing sequence. In a review by the Angry Video Game Nerd, after hundreds of tries, Rolfe is finally able to (unknowingly) land the plane using the Power Glove.
The Second Mission solved several problems, including the landing sequence, which was changed to just aligning the targeter. The AVGN did, however, note that the missiles do take notably less time to strike.
