Wings of Thunder is a single player game which was designed using Domark's Flight Sim Toolkit. It was released as a complete and free game but the author did ask for a donation if the player enjoyed the game.

There's a detailed story to this game which is summarised below.
In the future the world is at peace, weapon stockpiles are a thing of the past. Scientists have collaborated on creating artificial humanoid life which they called 'mandroids'. To see how clever and resourceful these mandroids are fifty were dumped in a secret location and left to their own devices for five years. When the time is up humanity is alarmed to find that there are no longer fifty mandroids but thousands upon thousands and they've developed weapons such as rocket launchers and they are on the move!
Agents infiltrate the mandroid homeland and plant homing devices in key locations. The objective of the game is to fly into mandroid territory, tune into the frequencies of these beacons and destroy everything.

There are twenty two missions in all, one for each homing beacon. The game is controlled with a combination of keyboard commands and a joystick


Wings of Thunder DOS ESC brings up the in-game menu. Calibrating the joystick is recommended in the documentation though it's better done on the ground
Wings of Thunder DOS Lots of keyboard controls though the joystick is essential for actual flying
Wings of Thunder DOS There's an over head map view that shows the plane's location in relation to the target, the plane is the small white dot that's above and to the right of the centre
Wings of Thunder DOS Heading to the enemy base. The weapons system has automatically locked in on something. It won't lock in on friendly or civilian targets so it must be a baddie
