Ace Academy

Very happy to find this WW1 flight game. It's a lot of fun, challenging, and the historic basis makes it different than most of what else is out there in the genre. The narration creates a realistic atmosphere and adds a sense of respect for the times, and a young man in the air war, 1916 on. The atmospheric part of the graphics is beautiful, which includes in-sun, rain and snow effect.

I like the Canadian background, I am Canadian, and that it took on the story of the RNAS Black Flight who were a legendary group of real airmen. Now there is a movie to make.

The action is arcade but with a very good feel of flight as well. What could improve this app would be an in-cockpit view but then we're getting into something more than a touch screen device can handle?

Over all, good job folks.

It was great but one issue

It’s a good ww1 game and I really enjoy it although there’s a glitch that you switch to one design I can’t switch to the one that I have switched off of and it says to buy bonds. Could you please fix this glitch

Lost all info

I worked hard to achieve levels and it’s all gone. I was really enjoying the game.


Played my way back, got a little farther and I lost all my game history again. Seriously disappointed after all that gameplay to be reset to the beginning. I also lost the coins I had earned and purchased.
