Description: 

Ace of Aces is a combat flight simulator developed by Artech Digital Entertainment in 1986 for many platforms, including the ZX Spectrum, MS-DOS, Atari 7800 and Commodore 64. The game takes place during World War II and the player flies a RAF Mosquito long range fighter-bomber equipped with rockets, bombs and a cannon. Missions include destroying German fighter planes, bombers, V-1 flying bombs, U-boats, and trains. Ace of Aces received mixed reviews but as of 1987, it was the second best-selling Commodore game published by Accolade.

When the game is first launched, a menu screen with options to either practice or partake in a proper mission is shown. If the player decides to do the practice mode, they can choose whether to do a dog fight or a U-Boat or train bombing. While in practice mode, the enemies are toned down. The five different view options can be accessed by clicked buttons on either the keyboard or by double-tapping the fire button, followed by moving the joystick to the desired direction. The five view options are the cockpit, both left and right wings, the navigational map and the bomb bay. When in missions, the player controls a twin-engines balsa RAF Mosquito and at the start of each mission, the plane is already airborne, mitigating the necessity of takeoff. When starting a mission, the player chooses what they wish to bring, but the more that's brought, the lower the maximum speed of the plane. At the end of missions, there is no need to land and points are awarded according to how many enemies are shot down, along with the amount of unused fuel, bombs, and missiles. When missions are completed, the player can choose to combine two or more to produce a mashup of multiple missions.
