Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies Taxies to Runway
Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol flew under my radar.
Awful puns aside, I’m always on the lookout for a good strategy game I can play on the go, and evidently Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol is pretty fantastic. I bring this up today because, lookee here, a sequel was just announced. Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies is set for launch on Steam and the App store “this fall.” Here’s the rundown from Firaxis:
Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies transports strategy fans to the treacherous skies of the Pacific Ocean theater of World War II. The game features the ability to personalize and advance your pilot profile and aircraft while embarking on a wide variety of missions, as well as unlocking special skill sets, upgrades and maneuvers. Players can also choose to pilot some of the most iconic American and Japanese fighter planes from the army or navy’s aviation units, while completing quests that take them through various historical battles such as Pearl Harbor, Midway and Guadalcanal.
If, like me, the original failed to make a blip on your radar, you can pick up Ace Patrol for $5 on Steam.
