SWIV is a 2D vertically-scrolling Shoot 'em up game originally released in 1991 for the Commodore Amiga , Atari ST , Commodore 64 , ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC home computer formats. The game was considered a spiritual successor to Tecmo arcade game Silkworm , which The Sales Curve had previously converted to home computer formats in 1989. The Game's heritage is evident from the game design whereby one player pilots a helicopter , and the other an armoured Jeep though SWIV is not an official sequel, as noted by ex-Sales Curve producer Dan Marchant: " SWIV wasn't really a sequel to Silkworm , but it was certainly inspired by it and several other shoot-'em-ups that we had played and loved."
