This game is the first game of WideAngleGames and is considered as flagship of the studio. It is implemented in AS2 and the development took more than 4 years. The inspiration comes from Dogfight game on Commodore Amiga, however it has more predecessors. I liked this game as a child very much because of the possibility to play with my friends on one computer (hotseat multiplayer). So I decided to create my own version, better and more complex. The game Dogfight Aces has been released in July 2012 and since then it has reached more than 4 milion plays worldwide. Since the game is complex and requires some skills to learn, many casual players got distracted from playing, quit playing too early and did not recognize the real beauty of the game.
Story of Dogfight Aces
After the World War I the biplane aces became useless. So they decided to found a tournament as a tribute to the good old times and heroes. Who wins the tournament becomes the Ace of all Aces. The player can choose from 7 pilots / biplanes and has to accomplish 20 levels. After each level, the player is able to buy upgrades and weapons for his airplane. There are 10 challenging achievements in a form of medals in the game.
The game is possible to play with mouse (default controls) or keyboard. Hit the Controls button in main menu to switch to keyboard controls.
