Ace Patrol feels like a port of a mobile game with no challenge. In a mere hour, I blew through half of the missions. You get to see the mission grid, much like other mobile games. You get four pilots / planes and pilot them on missions. Mostly blow up other planes. Sometimes, blow up tanks or zeplins. The game is turn based and played out on a hexigrid with each plane getting a certain amount of spaces based on their speed or altitude.

As you progress mission after mission, your planes / pilots will level up and gain skills you can chose from. You will also unlock upgrades to equip to your 4 planes. These skills feel useless and very subtle. You don't need the skills or upgrades before you get them. Never once did I feel like now that upgrade will totally help me do better.

This is just a very dull game. The maps look identical. The only real thing you even need to concern yourself with each map is enemy territory that will shoot you down, but enemy territory is so sparse, that you'll barely run into it. Plus its easy to avoid. The only way to hide from an enemy is hang out in clouds, but since you operate planes, you cannot really stay in clouds since you'll always be moving.

Avoid this game. Maybe on a phone it would be more fun to kill a bit of time with, but on PC, its just too easy to blow through.

Bland, limited & repetitive gameplay is what you can expect from Sid's Ace Patrol. I really tried to enjoy this (I put in the time!), but it has none of the 'one-more-turn' addictiveness of his other games.

So why is it so bad you ask?

Each map looks almost identical, graphics look like direct port from mobile platform, the mission types you can count on one hand & the game itself is very short covering 24 missions across 4 campaigns. They can go quick too! You do not feel there is any progression as you go through as the game centres around your score; having little in the way of feeling like you are winning a war. There is no territory to defend or conquer instead you choose from 3 random missions then up to 4 pilots to progress through each level. Pilot & plane upgrades are rewarded as you proceed through your game, but only really make it easier to win & that isn't really a strong point when the 'Legend' difficulty is not really very challenging. Legend (besides boosting your score) just makes it more frustrating than anything else since the opposing pilots get big stats boosts making it take a painfully long time to shoot them down yet much easier for you to be shot down.

Tactically you will find many dogfights are reduced to both of you flying around in circles for multiple moves until the AI decides to fly out giving you an opening to attack. You can try different tactics but it always comes back to 'circling' from my experience. Once you get behind someone it is very hard for them to get away (unless they're an Ace pilot), and likewise when the roles are reversed. It makes the first few turns of your engagment most important, but then very predictable after that. To add to this, I also couldn't play this on my old PC with ATI graphics as it wouldn't render the display, showing all white, so I have only been able to play recently since I got my new PC with NVidia graphics.

All said & done, I can't help but to ask myself why Sid would put his name on such a sub-par game, let alone make a sequel! Also milking it further by charging almost twice as much locally in AU @ $8.99 instead of US @ $4.99 (still well overpriced for what you get if you ask me).

Very disappointing! :(

turn based ww1 warplane strategy game.

it was ported from mobile devices, but better than expected.
sure the visuals look ugly, it has simple sounds and music, but all menus and gamemechanics work without any problem.

the game combines short campaigns, easy controls, four different nations and a few rpg elements into an interesting little time-waster.

i had fun playing it and its for sure worth the 4,99€!

The first of the fun, quick, isometric turn based flying games. Climb into your ♥♥♥ker D.VII and shoot down Roy Brown - or climb into your Sopwith Camel and have a go at the Red Baron.

While it might be a great mobile title (like Steambirds and Flight Control) it's a very poor desktop PC game for a host of reasons:
- it's a hurried exact port, with an engine resembling Flash, carrying very odd problems like complete broken graphics if i'm running Fraps or EVGA software, flickering menus if Winamp's running in brackground.
- gameplay cluttered with buttons and the dogfighting planes on the neighbouring hexes, making very difficult space orientation, and moving the camera (3D) doesnt help much since it's very unsmooth (feels like 10fps)
Basically a great concept from Sid, but the the monkeys who ported it for PC weren't fed.
