    TRIVIA
    Even if titlescreen says 1988, Fighting Hawk was released in March 1989 in Japan.

    Many Japanese gamers expected this game was in the line of Toaplan's "Flying Shark". But the game played very differently from Toaplan's usual style. So, the game was a flop.

    Fighting hawk's BGM and graphic engine were re-used in "Master of Weapon". Originally, Master of Weapon (at an early stage of development) was planned to be a sequel of Fighting Hawk.

    The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'H !'.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Stage selection screen: like many others games in the Taito library, this game has a hidden stage selection screen, here is the process:
    1) During the boot of the machine, press the 'service' button.
    2) "Service switch error" should appears, new press 1P START (x3) and the service button (x1).
    3) Stage Selection screen should appears.
