Battle Wings by Ideaspoon

A game similar to Crimson Skies in story, and Event Horizon in upgrading. Battle Wings puts you in the seat of a mercenary crew in an alternate history collapsed US, after WW1 ravaged the world’s economies, and mercenary air groups are used to defend trade.

It is on mobile.

It’s based on the remake of Wings of Fury for the Apple II, Wings of Valor, which isn’t available for download.

That looks like it could be fun! I really wish someone would do a true remake of Crimson Skies using a modern engine, in the same spirit as the original. VR would be the cat’s meow!


Its really unfortunate the only version of the game I can actually play is the xbox game High Road to Revenge, which is much more unrealistic than the original PC game.

I got the original working on Win10 for my son, runs fine and wasn’t too much tinkering

Oh man, I haven’t thought of that since Noah was a lad… If someone ever did a remake it would be ‘shut up and take my money’.


I have the original board game version, the hero clicks, all the video games, and most of the novels. Oh and I wrote my own strategic level sim/game that would give some narrative elements to the table top (which ever version). Not that I have more than a passing interest in Crimson Skies…

Truer words never spoken.

Never played the table top game but a combination of the box art and Porco Rosso was enough for me to buy the PC version.

I have just found a what looks like a legit copy.

Nevermind :frowning:

Bah, too much trouble to try and get it working, and I would probably be disappointed if I did. Note to self - stop giving in to nostalgia!
