Sid Meier's Ace Patrol Tips
Hints from the man himself.
2K Games teamed with Firaxis to release Sid Meier's Ace Patrol, a free-to-play iPhone and iPad title that casts players as World War I fighter pilots. Much dog fighting ensues as they fly the unfriendly skies, and to give these gamers an edge, Sid Meier provided the following five tips.
-Rookie pilots can perform 3 G maneuvers in a row before they have to fly a non G maneuver. More experienced pilots can add one additional G maneuver for each rank they've been promoted to.
-Don't be afraid to fall back over your own lines and cover your own anti-aircraft guns.
-Aircraft upgrades are awarded when you complete a mission with all of your aircraft returning with > 50 percent of their hit points.
-The most damaging attacks are made directly behind an aircraft. Differences of altitude and angle of the attack reduce the maximum damage of an attack.
-If an aircraft is damaged severely, a wrench icon will appear over its pilot. The pilot must sit out as many missions as he or she has wrench icons, while his or her plane is repaired.
