Strategize To Rule The Skies In Sid Meier's Ace Patrol

May 11, 2013
Having designed a great deal of acclaimed strategy and simulation games, Sid Meier is justly installed in the firmament of the most revered designers in the video game industry. But while most of us, being the mere players that we are, don't stand a chance of joining him there, he is inviting us to at least occupy a different sort of firmament. The firmament of virtual fighter pilots, that is, in his newly released iOS-exclusive game, Sid Meier's Ace Patrol. Sid Meier's Ace Patrol is the latest iOS-bound collaboration between the eponymous game designer and game publisher 2K Games, following Civilization Revolution and Sid Meier's Pirates. It's a strategy game set in the skies — the skies above 1900s Europe, to be exact. The game challenges you to assemble the best of the best pilots to serve in the Royal Air Force. As my colleague Casey noted, "Your squadron will start with a single skilled flyboy or flygirl, but soon will expand to include talented wingmen and women." If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Sid Meier's Ace Patrol has the following key features:
  • Advance from Aviator to Ace in over 120 missions using 30 authentic aircraft
  • Earn promotions, equipment upgrades and advanced maneuvers like rolls, loops and slips
  • Unlock new Aces with special skill sets to expand your gameplay options
  • Tilt and motion camera controls offer an immersive 3D strategy experience
  • Single Player campaign & Multiplayer missions with leaderboards through Game Center
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.1 or later, Sid Meier's Ace Patrol is available now in the App Store for free. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
