Apple Games Features WarBirds Dogfights
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has posted a new feature article, this time taking to the dangerous skies of WarBirds Dogfights from iEntertainment Network. In the game players choose from a large variety of historically accurate aircraft and fly in the game's many missions or engage in combat against other players online. The article includes an overview of the game, comments from iEntertainment CEO Bill Stealey, and a short history of flight sims.

“When you go online,” Stealey explains, “first we send you to the Special Training Arena, because we learned that new players get shot down very quickly in the regular arenas.” He pauses while getting a bead on an enemy plane; he litters one wing with bullets and a teammate finishes the kill. “In the Special Training Arena, all players are on the same side,” he adds. His team also created CheckRide and CheckOut training options: the former is aimed at experienced flight simmers who want to work on advanced tactics, while the latter is for those starting from square one.

You’ll want to finish one of the training options to access Free Flight in single-player mode. It lets you set a variety of parameters — everything from the difficulty level of enemy pilots to toggling invulnerability and unlimited ammo — before taking to the skies over a map of your choice. It’s a great way to practice your skills without worrying that you’ll let your wingmen down while playing online or taking on the stress of completing a campaign mission.
