Top Gun: Guts and Glory is a modern jet flight simulation that was released in 1993 for the original Nintendo Game Boy in Europe and North America.


Preparing to fire a missile at the enemy aircraft.

This video game is loosely based on the Top Gun movie starring Tom Cruise.[2] Essentially controlling a modern U.S. Air Force jet through ten levels, players must take out enemy jet fighters in addition to battleships.[2]

Aircraft that can be chosen are the F-14 Tomcat, the F-117A Nighthawk stealth fighter, the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the Soviet-made MiG-29 Fulcrum.[2] Players can either dedicate themselves to a long career mode, engage in a quick air combat session, or go on a bombing run.[2] Passwords help store the player's progress in career mode.[2]

Due to various limitations found on the original Game Boy system, the player can only see and fight against two enemy aircraft at a time.[3]


Power Unlimited gave this video game a 4 out of 10 rating while Joypad gave it a rating of 25% overall.[2] Aggregator GameRankings gave the game 51.50%.[4]
