Description

Wings of War takes you back to World War I, as you take to the skies in a variety of early combat airplanes and fight off the German armada.

The game is played as a 3rd-person arcade flyer in which most physics are downplayed in favor of arcade action. You can collect power-ups that can upgrade your engine, the amount of machine-guns you carry, replenish your health and shield (yes, shield) and increase the number of bombs and rockets you carry. You can also swap planes in mid-air, man turrets in AI-controlled bombers and even ground vehicles.

The game features a single player campaign composed of several missions with dozens of mandatory objectives as well as optional ones played which reward extra points and/or upgrades. Also available is an online multiplayer mode with standard combat and CTF modes, as well as a customizable instant action mode.
