DescriptionWing Commander Academy
puts players into the role of a fresh young recruit at the Confederation Academy, where new pilots must test their skills in the simulator. Unlike other Wing Commander
games, this game features no storyline or campaign. Instead players may play through simple dogfight missions or build waypoints on an interface similar to the radar view. Using this mission builder, the player may place objects that include friendly fighters, enemy fighters, enemy capital ships, space stations, and ejected pilots.
Controls and graphics are almost directly copied from Wing Commander II
. Similar to that game, the player engages in a first person space battle against Kilrathi forces in 360 space. Players are able to choose different ships, weapon types and wingmen.

The box ad blurb mentions uploading your custom scenaros to "bulletin boards" to challenge others. Ah, the days of the BBS...
