Apple Games Features Flyboys Squadron & WarBirds 2007

Apple Games latest feature examines air combat in both World War I and World War II with an examination of iEntertainment Network's FlyBoys Squadron and WarBirds 2007. The article includes commentary from IEntertainment's CEO, Lt. Colonel Bill Stealey, as well as a review of gameplay in both titles.

“We’ve done World War I simulations since 1989,” Stealey tells me as he hops out of his cockpit. “Having a movie tie-in with FlyBoys hasn’t hurt sales either. David Ellison, who’s a world acrobatic pilot champion, was an actor and pilot in the film. He’s flown with us a few times, and he had numerous improvements and suggestions for the game.”

Visually, FlyBoys is similar to WarBirds, and it offers online access to a World War I multi-player arena, where the action becomes just as heated as it does in WarBirds. The heart of the game is a series of 12 single-player missions that take you through a variety of scenarios, such as taking out enemy supply convoys, destroying a German zeppelin, and defeating the enemy’s top ace. You even get the chance to man a machine gun and attack incoming infantry trucks, sink ships trying to sneak up the river, and shoot planes out of the sky.

“The fight was much different in World War I compared to World War II,” Stealey observes. “It was primarily air-to-air, while World War II had more air-to-ground, including strategic bombing.”
