City Interactive has released Dogfight 1942 for Xbox Live Arcade. A fast-paced, World War II air combat game, Dogfight 1942 features more than 20 types of aircraft — from the fabled P-38 Lightning and Britain’s Spitfire to the feared Messerschmitt 109 and Japanese Kate — and three game modes, Dogfight, Survival and Campaign, where players are challenged with the same real-life missions faced by World War II pilots, ranging from bombing runs and dog fights, to manning gun emplacements on a bomber or anti-aircraft site.
“Being fans of flying games, it was disheartening to see the genre largely unrepresented on the various digital distribution platforms like XBLA, which is why we created a game that was both exciting and easily accessible,” said Lukasz Hacura, Executive Producer at City Interactive.
In designing the game, City Interactive implemented intuitive controls to reduce the need for lengthy tutorials and allow any level of gamer to get up and start flying, company officials noted. At the same time, the gameplay remains competitive so that even the most ardent flight game fan will enjoy a challenge, officials add.
Dogfight 1942 is currently available for download on Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points and available for download later this year on Sony PlayStation Network and Steam. More information can be found online at City-Interactive.com.
