Believe it or not, they would not be the first. It was a very crude game by todays standards but God did I spend a lot of hours at it. The game was "50-Mission Crush" put out by SSI for the Commodore 64.

A "runaway" resulted in a mandatory bail-out and the mission was over.

Took me better than 6 months to survive 50 consecutive missions but I finally got my certificate from SSI (they offered a very nice framable certificate if you sent them a photo of the screen that would come up if you survived all 50). I only ever managed to do this once.
