The Developer Website
Air Conflicts is an exciting new arcade flight combat game set in World War II. You take part in a series of Campaigns each simulating a different part of the war - from the Battle of Britain to the Fall of Berlin. Unlike other games where you can get stuck on a tough mission, in Air Conflicts, you need not complete a mission to advance in the campaign. Succeed or fail, the war goes on.
Each Campaign spans a year of World War II, and is particular to one of the three sides - the RAF, the Luftwaffe and the Soviet Red Air Force. For example, the RAF’s North Africa Campaign runs from December 1941 (Operation Compass) to November 1942 (the second battle of El Alamein).
In each month, there will be various Missions that can be taken, at different Battlefields. By flying these missions, you can improve your Service Record, and thus earn promotion to higher Ranks. Total victory in a mission can earn you Medals, but even partial success (or failure) can still be help the war effort - provided you manage to damage or destroy enemy planes or facilities.
Successes that advance your Service Record also advance the war effort, and overall victory or defeat for your side is determined by their final Rank at the end of the Campaign (and the selected difficulty level). Also, by shooting down enemy planes and bombing enemy targets, you score Kills which in turn unlock New Planes.
Help your side win victory - or just try and survive the enemy onslaught!
