Game Review

Spitfire Ace is a flight combat sim created by legendary game designer Sid Meier. Developed initially on an Atari 800, the game was published by MicroProse in 1982 for the Atari 8-bit and two years later for the Commodore 64.

One of the first games created by the famous Canadian designer, Spitfire Ace, is also the first tile published by MicroProse, the company founded by Sid Meier with Bill Stealy. In this game, you are the pilot of a Supermarine Spitfire airplane during World War II. Scenarios include London, France, and the famous D-Day.

Considering that this is an 8-bit game, expect simple graphics, but for 1982, it was a masterpiece. Spitfire Ace is just an example of the excellent skills of Sid Meier, that would go on and create some of the best combat sims ever, like F-15 Strike Eagle or F-19 Stealth Fighter.
