Sky Captain: Flying Legion Air Combat Challenge Blitz Games Limited / Paramount Pictures 2004

This was a freely downloadable game based on the movie "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow", released during its promotional campaign. Fly as the brave American pilot, Joe Sullivan, in a retro-futuristic alternate history of 1939, defending New York from the attack of mechanical flying wings and robots sent by the mysterious evil mastermind Dr. Totenkopf. Only you, the Sky Captain of the Flying Legion, can stop the robotic menace with your trusty Curtiss P-40 Warhawk-lookalike fighter. The first level is a flying race through Manhattan, NY where players fight an alien invasion using the same plane as Sky Captain’s team during their rescue missions. Once the aliens are defeated, players can move on to the next level: flying underwater to conquer a range of creatures from beyond. To add more suspense to the film and garner return visitors to the site, the third level remained an inaccessible secret until the movie launched. It was completely 3D - every location or background was done on green screen, which enabled us to use real-life visuals in imaginary situations. Users had the option of downloading the game to play it in a console-type setting or to compete online against other fans via the site’s leaderboard. The game required online registration (no longer accepted).
