WWII History

Thank you for playing World War 2 Trivia. We’ve been posting this for quite some time, as this is #566 in our series, so we trust you are enjoying this mental challenge each week. Let’s see how you do with today’s challenging question.

QUESTION: On July 26, 1941, the U.S. seized all Japanese assets in the United States. This was in response to a military move made by the Japanese days earlier. What did the Japanese do to prompt this seizure by the U.S.?

If you have a computer, and you have a desire to play one of the best combat flight simulators on the market, try our Aces High combat simulator. We promise hours of challenging fun.

ANSWER: A few days before the seizure, the Japanese had invaded French Indochina.

One of the most consistent questions we hear regarding our combat simulator, Aces High, is how long will it take to be competitive? A related question is often “do I have the skills needed to play against other experienced online gamers?”

We will tackle those two questions in today’s article, we being HiTech Creations, the creators of Aces High combat flight simulator. So, strap on your helmets and let’s fly the skies with Aces High!

What you need in equipment to be competitive

The following items will get you started:

  • Computer and internet connection
  • Windows 7 or better operating system
  • 4 GB

It should be noted that these are an inherent part of any computer made since 2000, so it really is no problem for 99% of computer-owners.

Items which will make your online experience more rewarding:

  • Joystick
  • Headphones
  • Microphone

Again, most gamers already have these items but, if you do not own them, they are readily available online and relatively inexpensive.

What skills you need

Aces High really was created with the beginner in mind. If you have a brain for strategy, and physical dexterity/coordination, you have the basic physical skills needed to participate in an Aces High battle.

How long before you are competitive?

Trivia is your mental workout, and our Aces High is your dexterity workout. Try our exciting combat simulator for outstanding gaming fun and challenges.

Aces High, the exciting combat simulator first introduced to the public in 2000, offers a rousing match of King of the Hill every week, and you are invited to play.

What is King of the Hill?

Surely you played King of the Hill as a kid.  We would play it in the summer on a large mound of dirt, and we would play it in the winter on a large mound of snow.  Everyone playing pushed and shoved each other from the top of the hill, and the last one standing on the hill was the King of the Hill.  It was rousing good fun.  Oh sure, sometimes it got a little out of hand. I recall quite a few times finishing the game with scrapes and bruises, but despite those minor scratches, which we just considered badges of honor, it was fantastic fun.

The King of the Hill Aces High style

Now, take that childhood memory, and apply it to an online game of Last Man Standing using fighter jets in a World War 2 arena.  King of the Hill is the airplane equivalent of a cage match. A group of players, all in the same planes, all in the same area, fight it out until only one is left. The winner picks the next plane, and all is repeated until someone wins three rounds. It is the mother of all furballs, where no one is your friend. Of course, no one is anyone else's friend, either, so there is balance. It is a wild, frenetic event that will get your pulse pounding and put a grin on your face -- unless you are the first one shot down, then it's grudge time!

Loads of fun!
