F-15 City War is a 3D and vertical shooter made by Idea-Tek in 1990 and released by various companies on both the Famicom and NES. The game is a clone of Sega's Thunder Blade.


One control a fighter aircraft in either pseudo 3D or vertical stages. Enemies arrive by in tanks or jet and target the player. Some stages present sections where large structures are to be avoided. Most stages are rather repetitive and present the same enemy patterns.


  • The Idea-Tek and original AVE versions have a rendering glitch at the final boss fight. The boss graphics are off-centered and do not match the position of its hitbox. The following ending screens are also off-centered. AVE released a revision that fixed this bug.
  • The player's plane moves at about half the speed in the Idea-Tek version.
