Phantom Leader looks awesome. Anyone know if it is available anywhere?


You can get Hornet Leader instead... its pretty much the same game only bigger and better... (with the same complexity.)

Ture, Wings, Knights of the Air and Wings of War: Famous Aces series are similar to RW. So is Wings Over France...check the description: "Wings Over France is a solitaire WWI wargame, simulating the day-to-day operations of a RFC Squadron during the month of April 1917, known as "Bloody April" because of the heavy losses suffered by the allied air force. The game puts the player in control of 1 to 3 RFC Flights based in Arras, France.

The objective is to sweep the skies clear of Huns in support of the Arras ground offensive, but just surviving would be an achievement.

Each squadron has to undertake a number of missions each day (determined randomly), but with limited resources and personnel.

The various missions include rece's, bombing raids, destroying enemy balloons etc - but all will involve dogfights with enemy aircraft - with the game easily capable of handling over 20 aircraft fighting in the skies simultaneously."

which is the same for RW except RW can play up to six people...where as Thunderbolt/Apache Leaderis modern day jet fighters...

Cheers,
Andy

Richthofen's War set the stage for Wings Over France, which appears to be a re-make of this Avalon Hill game.


That doesn't sound right to me. Wings, Knights of the Air and others are similar to RW, but WOF is closer to maybe Thunderbolt/Apache Leader

(edit: wrong wings!)


I don't need to check it, I've got it. It is nothing like RW.

My best solitaire air combat gaming experience was playing Sturmovik IL-2 on a computer with a good graphics card, a big screen, and with a good joystick. Awesome computer combat flight simulation game!arrrh



As someone who spent thousands of hours playing IL2 I agree 100%

So much so that I purchased the WW1 flight sim Rise of Flight to play. I got it on sale for 9.99 as a digital download and it's a blast
