Flying High with Ace Patrol

imageA few weeks ago I downloaded and tried out Ace Patrol for the iPad. I thought it was a very interesting turn based air combat game. Your pilots get better as they fly more missions. And more missions means better upgrades and improved aerial maneauvers. I went through the first "mission" and put the game away saying I would come back to buy the expansions. I like the pay structure of Ace Patrol. You can buy individual missions piecemeal or buy the whole package at once. It’s a Lite game and then you buy the rest of the "expansion packs".

I recently bought the entire game at the same time I bought Dead Man’s Draw. That was a great combo of games let me tell ya. But things got better when Steam put Ace Patrol on sale. Ironically, I got the desktop version of Ace Patrol for the same price I paid for it on the iPad with all the content. $4.99 is a fantastic price to pay for a game like this.

And I finally got a chance to try it out on the machine I keep tinkering with. I upgraded the memory and the processor to brning it up to 32GB of ram, 8-core AMD and GTX 660 video card. That should be enough to play some casual games. And it was.

Ace Patrol is pretty damn sweet. The controls are a snap to learn, you get plenty of upgrades to make your pilots better and the graphics are cool enough to make it all look good. I got through the first mission with no problem. Of course my score was horrible, but that isn’t the point. I still learning maneuvers and tactics. But overall the game is very cool and my machine worked exceptionally well, not that I expected this game to tax it’s capabilities.

Ace Patrol is still only $4.99 from Steam. That’s a nice price for this fun little title. It may not be the most complex FPS or be the biggest dungeon crawl, but it’s still fun to play. If you haven’t checked it out it’s well worth the time and the money.
