Description

Out of the Sun is a sophisticated World War II flight simulator that puts players in the cockpit of authentic WW2 aircraft in the three most famous prominent battles of the war: The Battle of Midway (Pacific theatre), Operation Overlord (D-Day) and The Battle of Kursk from the European theatre.

The player chooses which theater and which side to fly for (United States, Great Britain, Germany or Japan). This choice determines which planes can be selected for the specific battle. All of the planes have sub-missions in addition to the main scenario. Control the aircraft using the keyboard, joystick or mouse. Various weapons can be selected as well as settings for landing gear, hydraulics, brakes, and flaps.

Skill Levels (from easiest to most difficult) are Arcade, Training, Combat and Veteran. The G-L.O.C. (Gravity-Induced, Loss of Consciousness) option lets players experience the effects of G-forces onscreen - Blackouts (from excess G forces) and Redouts (from too many negative Gs).

Out of the Sun is a single player game. No multiplayer is available. It has similar gameplay to Flying Nightmares.
