Permission for take-off granted. Low-altitude mobile platforms conquered, it's time for real lift to be gained and true battle to be met by Sid Meier's Ace Patrol, which now arises to Steam heights.


Quote


The skies over Europe are a dangerous place, where ace pilots lead their squadrons to glorious victory or crushing defeat! Take control of dozens of the most famous fighter planes of WWI and head into the dogfight. Roll, slip, and loop to get the drop on enemy aces. Upgrade your fighters over the course of your campaign and promote your best pilots so they learn new skills to give them an edge in battle. Can you change the tide of the war? Or will you go down in flames to an enemy ace?



Nosediving to the features:

• Unlock new Aces with special skill sets to expand your gameplay options

The game can currently be purchased with the benefit of a 10% off launch discount until September 4th.

So sid and his team are just remaking all the great games from the early 90's? This wouldnt be a bad thing if they could avoid dumbing everything down Posted Image

This game was made for iOS (iPhone), so it can be expected to be simple, if very well-crafted due to Sid's dedicated involvement. I read around a bit and found out it's a tad buggy at the moment, being a port and all. But that should improve with a patch or two.
