There's a brand new Sid Meier app in the App Store: Sid Meier's Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies. The game, which launched earlier today and is available for $4.99, is a sequel to the original Sid Meier's Ace Patrol. This launched back in May, and allows iDevice owners to take to the skies of 1900s Europe in a number of air-based missions and scenarios. Now, however, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owners can join in the virtual warfare of World War II in more than 180 battles, including those of Pearl Harbor, Midway, and Guadalcanal. More specifically, as the app's name suggests, Sid Meier's Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies relocates gamers to "the treacherous Pacific waters where ace pilots redefine historic World War II battles." In the application's release notes, 2K Games explains:
