Red Baron puts you in the pilot's seat of actual World War I fighter aircraft. This game features 28 different aircraft from both the Allied and the German sides presented in actual 3D graphics. Start a career as a pilot and rise through the ranks to become the most feared ace in the skies, or participate in a variety of single missions including simple fighter sweeps, balloon-busting, zeppelin hunting, or take on an actual WWI ace in one-on-one combat. If you're good enough, you may even be able to take on the infamous Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron himself.

256 color version

Players who owned the 16-color version of the game were a couple of months later invited to send away to Dynamix with proof of purchase to obtain free diskettes containing the 256-color version.


The box came with maps and a very big manual with information about the Red Baron, WOI, photo's, aircraft specifications, the lot.

Freeware release

This 16 color version was made available as freeware to promote and make amends for the late release of Red Baron II.


Sierra's on-line community known as the ImagiNation Network (INN) featured, among many other games, a multiplayer version of Red Baron. The multiplayer version was popular and attracted quite a following until the network was unfortunately shutdown in 1996. The Red Baron community supported many squardons (some of which still exist today in other on-line flight simulators), inter-squadron wars, and a player-run "SkyWars Council."
