Sky Destroyer is a Z-axis shooter originally released for the Arcade and later ported to the Nintendo Famicom. Magical Company originally developed the game back when they were still known as Home Data, while Taito published both the Arcade and Famicom versions.

The player is flying a Japanese WWII fighter plane, shooting down US F6F Hellcats over the Pacific Ocean. They also encounters B-24 Bombers, which will need extra firepower and will escape after a while, so the player needs to act fast to bring them down.
