Players will relive the action-filled dogfights of the Pacific Theater of WWII as both Japanese and American pilots. Featuring arcade-styled gameplay, an accessible interface and extensive tutorials, players will be able to quickly jump into their aircraft of choice and take part in a variety of legendary battles such as Midway, Iwo Jima, Doolittle Raid and the Liberation of Manila.

It is good that Simbin explores multiple genres actually... This way they get more expierenced with programming different items etc.

Although it is never good to see a wonderful developer of racing games developing other things...
