Falcon was originally designed and produced by Gilman Louie and programmed by Les Watts for the MSX (1984), under title of "F-16 Fighting Falcon") and Macintosh (1987 as "Falcon"), and used bitmapped 3D MiG-21s as adversaries. This was several years before Origin's Wing Commander used a similar graphics engine. It was ported to the PC later, but no longer used bitmapped graphics. Instead, the adversaries became primitive polygons instead.
