Wings Of Destiny General Simulations Incorporated / Psygnosis Limited 2000

Wings of Destiny is a flight simulation which takes place in World War II, more specific the air war between England and Germany. So the games simulates four aircrafts. The Messerschmit Me109e, the 12-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected "workhorse" of the German fighters, or its companion plane, the Messerschmit Me262a (originally named the Stormbird), the first jet-engined aircraft to fly in active service, introduced very close to the end of WWII. If you choose to fly missions for the British, the North American Aviation P51 Mustang or the oft-revised Spitfire, developed in 1938 as a replacement for the British Bulldog fighter, are available. Both were originally powered by Rolls Royce Merlin engines, although the Spitfire simulated in the game features the updated Rolls Royce Griffon engine with its superior performance to German fighters. All four planes are depicted with realistic cockpit control panels and are modeled with real-life capability in terms of performance, handling and weaponry. The main forces of lift, weight, drag and thrust are replicated for each aircraft with workable ailerons, rudders and airbrakes. The planes are equipped with cannons and the physics of deflection firing are in force (leading the target where necessary). The 50 missions in the game are played at either easy, normal or hard skill levels and are played in linear fashion. Some missions include the added requirement to take-off and land while others begin with the flight already in progress. The interface supports both keyboard and joystick for actual flight maneuvering (joystick recommended by developers) and the mouse controls the in-game menus. Multi-player action is supported for up to four players over a LAN, the Internet or modem with two-player games supported by serial connection. Additional aircraft encountered in the skies during air combat include the Heinkel He 111H-3, Focke Wulf 190 F-8, Me 110G, Ju52, Ju87, Hurricane, B-17 and MC-200.
