Back of Cassette Case - Commodore 64 (United Kingdom):
    "No British aircraft will ever bomb Berlin," Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goering had often boasted. But in the middle of a Nazi anniversary speech in January 1943, his listeners ducked for cover as a carefully timed raid of RAF Mosquitos struck Berlin in broad daylight.
    Ace of Aces captures the spirit and puts you in the cockpit of the Mosquito, maverick RAF fighter bomber of World War II. Down the Nazi bombers, sink the U-boats, outrun the V-1 rockets and stop the enemy trains. Choose your weapons and fuel wisely - once you're out on mission, there's no going back. To become Ace of Aces, you must complete all missions successfully.

    1. From the moment you zoom in a scrap with Nazi fighters to the heart-stopping second you spot the U-boats of Kiel, the defense of the Allied world is in your hands. Are you equal to the challenge?

    2. Once you master a few flying tricks in your speed bomber, you tackle strategy: selecting the right number of machine guns, rockets and bombs to achieve your mission.

    3. Your intercom flashes 'warning' on your starboard engine. An enemy fighter attack has left your Rolls Royce engine in flames. Cut back your boost and throttle. Hit the extinguisher before the fire spreads.

    What does it take to be an Ace? From you, legendary British pride and guts. From US Gold, legendary playability. US Gold has done its part. The rest is up to you, mate.

    "No British aircraft will ever bomb Berlin," Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goering had often boasted. But in the middle of a Nazi anniversary speech in January 1943, his listeners ducked for cover as a carefully timed raid of RAF Mosquitos struck Berlin in broad daylight.

    Ace of Aces combines the exhilaration of flight with the gut-wrenching pressure of enemy confrontation. From the moment you zoom through the clouds in a scrap with Nazi fighters to the heart-stopping second you spot the U-boats of Kiel, the defense of the Allied world is in your hands. Are you equal to the challenge?

    After mastering a few flying tricks in your speed bomber, it's in time to develop your strategy: Choosing the right number of machine guns, rockets and bombs to achieve your mission. Keep your distance when firing on V-1 Buzz Bombs, or be blown to bits.
    Bomb the trains without harming British and American POWs. And don't forget to estimate your fuel accurately, or you'll be swimming the English Channel.

    Your intelligence report says to fly east, so you consult your map. Should you go through the storm or around? You're both hunter and hunted - the clouds hide enemy aircraft, so take heed. Your only allies are your wits, your weapons, and your radar. When you reach the U-boats and trains, you'll need the stamina to blast targets accurately.
    Or be blasted.

Description from manual (Atari 7800):
    Trump That Ace!

    It's World War II and Britain's Royal Air Force is up to its neck in Axis attacks. As one of the RAF's most aggressive pilots, you're in on flying the most crucial missions to stall the enemy.

    They attack by land, air, and sea. Your only allies are your DeHavilland Mosquito, your weapons, and your wits. Chase the Nazi bombers, sink the U-boats before they can dive, outrun the V-1 buzz bombs, and stop the POW trains from reaching the enemy lines.

    Choose your ammunition and fuel wisely -- once you're on a mission, there's no turning back. To be an Ace, you need four enemy defeats. To be Ace of Aces, you've got to be the best!
