WWII History

This is the 400th installment of World War 2 Trivia, and we welcome you back. Play along and let’s see how much you know about World War 2.

QUESTION: On October 2, 1941, the German Central forces began an all-out offensive against Moscow. What was the name of that military operation?

How would you like to time-travel and take part in the famous battles of World War 2, all from the safety of your living room? You can when you play Aces High, the combat simulator with attitude, brought to you by HiTech Creations for the past twenty years. Give us a try today!

ANSWER: The German offensive against Moscow was named Operation Typhoon!

We at HiTech Creations, the makers of Aces High, the exciting flight simulator which burst onto the gaming scene in 2000, love the winter months. In our humble opinion, the winter was made for gamers. Summers are for outdoorsmen. Summers are for picnics and waterskiing and barbecues. Summers are for family fun and ballgames and outdoor concerts.

But winter is for Aces High!

And here’s why!

Shorter Days

There’s so little time, during the winter, to get outside and do your outdoor chores. You get up, on a weekend, around nine, eat, shower, do a couple chores, and suddenly the sun has set. You hardly have time to do anything outside, so our theory is why even try? Just put all of those chores on hold until April, welcome in Daylight Savings Time once again, and then go at them like a mad man for the spring and summer. Cast away the guilt, during the winter, and embrace Aces High, the combat simulator with attitude.

Longer Nights

Seriously, how much television can you watch? It gets dark by five. You go to bed at eleven. Can you really watch six hours of television? Here’s our suggestion so you don’t rot your brain during the winter: watch three hours of your favorite programming, and then play Aces High, the leader in World War 2 flight simulators.

Perfect solution to the winter doldrums, don’t you think, and especially after the first of the year, when regular programming ceases, but more about re-runs in a second.

Rotten Weather

If you live above the Mason-Dixon Line, winter means cold winds and cold snow and cold rain and, well, cold! They can start in October and not end until the waning days of March.

Do you really want to go outside in that miserable stuff?

Of course you don’t! We have a suggestion, and that suggestion is Aces High, the leading flight simulator. Cozy up in a warm, toasty blanket, log on to our wildly popular MMO game, and compete against the best flight sim gamers in the world. No more wet hair, no more heavy parkas, and no more winter colds. You could say that Aces High is your relief from the winter blues.


Listen, we understand the attraction to re-runs. We’ve seen “Top Gun” ten times. If “Jurassic Park” is playing, we won’t miss it. We get it! We really do. But, if you are an average television viewer, come about January you just can’t watch another repeat of “Family Guy,” or “Friends.”

Turn off the boob tube and play Aces High!

Family Get-togethers

Winter is the time of great family get-togethers. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, those days are meant for groups of people, coming together, enjoying each other’s company. They are also the days when most people will play games with one another.

Enter Aces High! Log on and take on your relatives in a rousing battle. You could have family tournaments. You could make holidays extra-meaningful with a great bonding experience.

Bottom Line: winters are great for Aces High. Try our free two-week download today. If you like our game, and we are convinced that you will, you then only pay $14.95 per month for unlimited gaming excitement.

If you like trivia, and who doesn’t, you’ll love World War 2 Trivia. We welcome you to #399 on this Tuesday morning, and we invite you to play along every Tuesday and Thursday on our webpage.

We are HiTech Creations, the makers of Aces High, the leader in World War 2 flight simulators.

QUESTION: On September 27, 1941, the first Liberty Ship was launched in the United States, in order to help with the Allied supply system. What was the name of that first Liberty Ship?

Have you played Aces High yet? If not, why not? We offer a free two-week download of our game, so it’s easy, free, and a ton of fun.

ANSWER: The first Liberty Ship was the SS Patrick Henry!

This article is being written in October. At this time a number of high-tech companies are introducing new combat simulators, just in time for the holiday shopping spree going on around the world.

It’s the same each year. Every year, at this time, you can count on four or five, sometimes more, new flight sim games entering the market, all claiming to be the best thing since sliced bread. Admittedly, some of them are quite good. Admittedly, some are not so good, but you would never know it from the trailers they post and the advertising copy which introduces them to the world.

So, the question is, how does the buying public choose from among the many World War 2 flight simulator, or just flight simulators, on the market?

When in doubt, turn to experience!

We are HiTech Creations, and in 2000 we introduced a new product, one we were sure would revolutionize the gaming industry. That product was called Aces High, and in a highly-competitive world, Aces High has continued to stand atop the list of flight sim games for twenty years.

Experience counts!

Let’s look at a couple reasons why we believe experience really does matter in online video games.

Working out the bugs

My Dad, on the day I got my driver’s license, told me that one day I would want to buy a car, and he said to never buy a new car model, because it takes a few years for a car company to work out the bugs on a new model.

That advice is as true for combat simulators as it was for cars. No matter how good the technicians are who are creating a video game, there will always be minor problems and glitches in that game when it is introduced. We know because we had our problems the first year we introduced Aces High. We worked those problems out quickly but still, that first edition of Aces High was not nearly as good as our 2020 version, and we feel safe in saying that about any new game introduced any year.

Constantly improving and tweaking

The second year of our existence, we had worked out the problems of the first year, but that in no way means we had a perfect game, and that’s what we were after – perfection! Heck, that’s what we are still seeking, and that is why we continue to tweak our game, fine-tune our game, and look for ways to improve it. Quite frankly you should expect that from any gaming company.

Taking on all comers and still standing tall

Twenty years! We are pretty proud of that fact. Aces High has stood on the “leader board,” in a highly competitive industry, for twenty years, taking on all the competition. Yes, we are very proud of that fact.
