Trivia

Cancelled Amiga version

A Genesis version was developed and actually reviewed by GamePro (Nov. 1994, Rating: 2 out of 5), but it was never released.

Title

The game was originally to be called Red Baron, but the company later learned that Sierra/Dynamix already had the rights.

Version differences

  • A second DOS release of Knights of the Sky was made available that contained:
    • General bug fixes
    • Fix for fast 386's and 486's
    • "Friendly" patrols
    • Incremental damage from enemy fire
    • Enhanced IBM sound driver
  • In the Amiga/ST versions of the game you can land your plane and get it completely repaired, but you are not permitted to take on more ammunition.
