Well, unlike it's predecessor, this one has menus and a UI, but unfortunately it still crashes constantly. Avoid like the plague.

A great throwback to Over The Reich.. A hardcode tactical game that made casual without sacrificing the gameplay.
The only complaint is it to short and needs more planes!

It's a pretty good game, for a $5.00 game. Some of the animations when the planes maneuver clearly weren't finished or half heartedly put together. Other then that it's a very fun casual game.

Ace Patrol Pacific Skies is basically the exact same game as Ace Patrol (which was set in WW1) moved to WW2 Pacific Theater where you play the Japanese side or the American side.

The game is best described as a turn-based air combat where you move planes from hex to hex, where the "attitude" and "altitude" of the plane, as well as the skill of the pilot, determines what moves you can make. If you are low, you can't use a power dive (drop several levels of altitude) or "falling leaf" (drop several levels of altitude and face a specific direction), for example, or if you were in a left turn, you can't immediately switch to a sharp right turn (unless you learned "roll" manuevers). This is harder to explain than to see for yourself by watching the videos.

You control 2 or 4 planes and corresponding pilots. As pilots make "kills" they gain experience that can be translated to better power moves. So it's not good if you let one pilot do all the killing... Share the bounty.

In a bit of ahistorical equality, there are female pilots (fortunately, you can turn that off).

Try not to let your pilots get shot down. They can be kept prisoner or end up in hospital for several missions. The planes themselves can also be damaged and repairs are not instantaneous.

Typically you have about 6 missions per "year" and there's a big mission at the end. and 4 years in a campaign. You are scored based on how much damage you caused, did you complete your objective (such as taking out a ground target), vs. how much damage did you suffer.

If you like Ace Patrol, Pacific Skies is the same game with faster planes.

Badly ported mobile game.

Had high hopes since I am a big fan of Sid Meier but I would avoid this game.

Game keeps crashing (reboots). When it does work, it isn't any fun. Horrible graphics hurt my eyes. Sid Meier actually put his name on this ♥♥♥♥?

Keeps crashing for no reason

Update: I now have a new computer, now actually works. Still, the game is horrible and buggy. Has a good idea though.

Good when you just want to do some casual gaming

I can't even play this. It keeps crashing before I get to the main menu, and I have tried this on two computers, one of them being able to run Civ 5, Borderlands 2 and SR2 and 3 with no problems.

Very nice funny and happy game except one thing although there is an option to save the game there isn't one to load your saved games when you are inside the game only in the front page before starting one, weird first time have seen that. Also there isn't an exit botton inside the campaigns.

Minor Differences to the original. Now it's over the pacific and there's airforce and navy. Still hard to control and is meant for mobile. Don't buy it it's not worth $9 or buying the bundle. Don't I mean it's alright if you really love planes but the game is hard to control and gets boring quick. 3/10

This game is a hex based game where you simulate dog fighting on a turn by turn decision. It's fun but I wish there was more attacking of ground targets such as ships, vehicles, bases which the game really doesn't have any of. So if you're buying it, you are buying it for a turn based dog fighting simulator.

Fun and addictive turn based strategy game. A good game, especially if you are a fan of WW2 era games.
