Macgamestore has announced the digital download release of Warbirds: Dogfights (http://www.macgamestore.com/detail.php?ProductID=1417) for the Mac. The game is an action-air combat game that puts players in the cockpit of the greatest World War II (WWII) air combat planes during the pivotal battles of the war. The game was developed and published by iEntertainment Network.
Here’s how Warbirds: Dogfights is described: “The game features the ability to engage in dogfights as a member of either the Allies or Axis powers, more than 100 WWII aircraft and realistic game environments from both the European and Pacific battle theaters of WWII. In addition, players can expect constant diversity in mission play and deep replay value via a dynamic game engine and access to one-month of free playing time for the classic massive multiplayer online game (MMOG), WarBirds.
“Dogfights players can take to the air as a member of either the Allies or Axis powers in the historic air battles in both the European and Pacific theaters of WWII. Once ready to log some time in live fire combat scenarios they choose one of three levels of pilot expertise: Rookie, Pilot, or the highly skilled Ace, as they take off in one of more than 100 historically accurate aircraft. Gameplay environments included in the game are historical recreations of WWII areas of England, Europe, and North Africa, including cities like London, Paris, and Berlin.
“Also present are areas representing Pacific battle campaigns, the battle for the Philippines, Midway and more. The game features more than 40 base combat missions, as well as dynamic mission generation functionality which ensures virtually unlimited mission play options in single player mode. In each battle the player can score points, build rank, and acquire medals to compete for the coveted title of WGFP – Worlds’ Greatest Fighter Pilot in the air battles of WWII.”
Warbirds: Dogfights requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later. It costs US$29.95, though a demo is available for download.
