Amiga classic Wings gets re-mastered in high definition[www.cinemawarewings.com] with all its original missions, dogfights, story and gameplay!

Colonel Farrah advises: “Beware the Hun in the Sun” (Wings’ Legacy) “Relive the action, glory and seat of the pants daring of a WWI Allied fighter pilot! You'll strafe Hun armies, bomb enemy aerodromes and match wits against deadly Aces in heart-stopping dogfights, the loser going down in flames... without a parachute! More than just a simulator, Wings features genuine arcade action and an emotion packed role-playing experience. Wings is the easy to play air combat simulation you've been waiting for... no complicated keyboard commands. Just fly and shoot!”

It was with these words that Cinemaware’s Wings entered the annals of the videogame industry and the hearts of gamers across the globe 23 years ago. Wings was more than just an action flight sim…it truly was a personal combat experience, reflecting all the drama, emotional involvement and brutality that WWI pilots went through in their (usually short) war experience. The emotional impact that Wings’ game playing experience had on gamers has never been quite replicated in the history of the industry...

Now, Cinemaware and a team of games industry veterans are working at bringing this game back with all its original missions, storyline and gameplay intact, presented with new, up-to-date high definition graphics, music, sound and controls!

This is the start in the re-launch of a range of classic Cinemaware games on a variety of platforms. Remember Defender of the Crown, It Came From The Desert, Rocket Ranger, Lords of the Rising Sun and The King of Chicago? We’ve got big plans for all of these titles.

The Game
Wings is a World War I flying combat game, originally released by Cinemaware Corp. in 1990. It earned some of the highest reviews of all Amiga games and still has a loyal fan base around the world that have fond memories of this and other Cinemaware games, which had a unique atmosphere and style still unmatched to this day.

It features a mix of gameplay styles, including top-down view bombing runs, isometric strafing attacks and in-cockpit 3D dogfights, seamlessly blended with an engrossing and immersive storyline over the course of 230 missions.

We're also working on adding fantastic new effects and features to add atmosphere in the cockpit, including damage to your own aircraft and pilot, external camera views, detailed damage to enemy planes, and lots of great new art.

The Team
Wings: Remastered Edition is being produced by some of the video game industry’s biggest and most experienced talents, including members of the team who brought you Cinemaware’s Robin Hood: Defender of the Crown remake in 2003. They have also got some other incredible game credits such as NBA Jam, Shadowman, Mega Man Anniversary Collection, Jackie Chan Adventures, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo and many classic Amiga classics such as Spellbound Dizzy, Switchblade 2, and Pegasus. It is a team that has been together and working on game development for over 30 years.

Wings’ well-known score will be re-recorded in finest HD-quality by Sound of Games' - The #1 in Premium Game Music from Germany and collaborator in other successful Kickstarter campaigns!

Finally, Ken Melville, Cinemaware alumnus and co-writer/game designer of It Came From the Desert and the original Wings missions, is also collaborating with us on great new content and future story extensions if YOU help us reach our stretch goals! So keep pledging!

I just loved the old arcade flight simulator games and will always have a few extra dollars to spend on these type of old time rock and roll games. Hope to see Cinemaware Wings Remastered HD on Steam.

Almost ALL cinemaware games were (and still are) very good. Just be sure to keep the "older" feeling about it, the atmosphear was what made those games great.
