WWII History

World War 2 Trivia is back with Installment #424. You know how it works: we toss you a question about World War 2, and it becomes quickly obvious just how much you know. Maybe you are another Ken Jennings, from Jeopardy, or maybe you are another Ken Bobke, from nowhere. Let’s find out!

QUESTION: On April 26, 1943, the British attacked and captured “Longstop Hill,” a key position on the breakout road towards what city in what country?

Five minutes, that’s how long it will take you to download our free two-week download of Aces High, the leader among combat simulators. Seriously, what do you have to lose by trying?

ANSWER: “Longstop Hill” was a key position on the road to Tunis, in Tunisia, North Africa!

Much has been written over the years about the pros and cons of playing video games. We have no desire to regurgitate information which has been printed ad nauseum, so today we will take a look at a specific niche of video games, namely combat simulator games. Since we have been producing our combat simulator, Aces High, for over twenty years, we believe our perspective might be educational and helpful to all of you thinking about purchasing a game or a subscription to a game.

Let’s see what we came up with.

Improves basic visual processes

Playing video games helps to improve eyesight by strengthening the tiny eye muscles. They also help to improve the eye’s ability to distinguish subtle shades of gray, and help to visually detect the direction of movement.

These are all good things, and scientific facts, not some marketing pitch. As always, excess of any activity is never a good thing. Spending too many hours staring at a computer screen has negative physical effects, so moderation is always the keyword.

Enhances executive functioning

Playing video games like Aces High will help to improve a person’s multitasking, increase mental flexibility, and even help to stave off, and reverse, the aging decline of older players. Think of it this way: exercise, in moderation, is a good thing for the muscles of the body; whey would it be any different for the human brain?

Improves everyday skills

Hand-eye coordination, lengthened attention span, improved memory, and improved rapid-decision making abilities, these are all good things, and these are all accomplished when you play a World War 2 flight simulator.

This isn’t just us at HiTech Creations telling you this; leading health researchers all confirm that online flight simulators like Aces High will deliver multiple benefits like those mentioned above.

Eases anxiety and depression

Problems of the day got you down? Feeling too much stress lately? In the world of 2020, there was enough stress going around to last most people a lifetime, and 2021 isn’t starting out too terribly well either. Playing a combat simulator like Aces High will relieve stress during the time you are playing the flight sim game, and any relief of stress is a good thing for your heart.

Improve team skills

Aces High is an MMO game, teaming you with some of the best flight sim players in the world, working out strategies, executing battle plans, all working towards a central goal. How can that ever be a bad thing? Don’t we need improved team skills in the world today, more people who can work with others, learn to compromise, and learn to move forward with a common purpose? Of course we do.

A word about Aces High

Aces High was one of the first World War 2 flight simulators to enter the online gaming market in 2000. For twenty years now we have represented excellence in the gaming world, and that kind of longevity should deliver peace of mind to anyone thinking about playing our game. Try our free two-week download of Aces High.

You’ll be happy you did!

Playing World War 2 Trivia is like playing Jeopardy without Alex Trebek. Every week we offer two trivia questions, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and you try to answer them. That’s it, a simple game to sharpen your minds and give you bragging rights around the office for a day.

Are you ready?

QUESTION: On February 16, 1943, Prime Minister of Vichy France Pierre Laval formally created the Service du travail obligatoire. What was the formation?

ANSWER: The Service du travail obligatoire was the formation of a forced workforce made up of French working men who would work in Germany during the war.

World War 2 Trivia gives you an opportunity to test your knowledge about the devastating chapter in the lives of so many. Each week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, we toss out a question, sometimes easy, sometimes hard, to challenge you. Let’s see how much you know today, shall we?

We want you to totally enjoy your time with us.

Do the math on that monthly price. If you play once each day, you are playing for fifty cents per play. If you play twice per days, it’s costing you twenty-five cents to play. That’s what an arcade game cost you back in the 1990’s. You simply can’t beat that price.
