WWII History

Rarely does a day go by when we aren’t asked how to play our exciting combat simulator Aces High. Since we’ve been doing this for over twenty years, that is a whole lot of requests.

Our answer twenty years ago, and our answer today, is the same: sign on and learn as you go! That may not seem too terribly helpful but, in our experience, the best way to learn how to play our World War 2 flight simulator is to simply dive in and get your feet wet. That’s one reason why we offer, at absolutely no expense to you, a free two-week download of Aces High. It is our belief that two weeks is more than enough time to 1) discover how much fun Aces High is, and 2) to learn how to play the game with some proficiency.

But fine! We understand there are players out there who need a bit more instruction than our seat-of-the-pants method, so we offer quite a few other options to you so you can learn how to play Aces High.

Learn on the forums

Click on “Forums” and you will be taken to our Forum Page. There you will find thirty-one different forums currently available, and each forum literally has dozens, if not hundreds, of posts and topics. This is the ultimate in players helping players. Any question you might have has already been asked, and you will find a discussion about your question somewhere on that forum link.

Why are we so sure of that?

Twenty years!

We have a dedicated team of staff and volunteers, and someone is always available to work with you one-on-one should you need additional schooling in our flight sim game.

We are pretty confident that after twenty years in this business, we’ve dotted all the I’s and crossed all the T’s when it comes to instructional videos.

A word about Aces High

Twenty years! We’ve been siting on top or near the top of the online combat simulator market for over two decades. During that time we’ve seen quite a few new games introduced, and we’ve seen quite a few games fall by the wayside, but we are still here going strong.

Try our free two week download of Aces High, no credit card required. We are convinced that, if you do, you will be eager to sign on for a month, then another month, then another, and we will have another loyal and satisfied customers.

Christmas has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the gift-giving must end. We can’t think of any better gift for the gamer in your family than Aces High, the leader in World War 2 flight simulators. It’s creator, HiTech Creations, welcomes you to World War 2 Trivia #417.

QUESTION: The first All-American air raid against Germany happened at Wilhelmshaven. Why was that city the primary target of the raid?

HiTech Creations offers a free two week download of Aces High, sort of a gift before you purchase the gift. Give it a try for countless hours of flight sim gaming fun and challenge.

ANSWER: Wilhelmshaven was a large naval base for Germany.

It is our opinion that Aces High, sitting high on the leaderboard of combat simulators for twenty years, offers great gaming value for any gamer of any age, but an opinion is pretty much worthless without proof.

So, this article will prove our opinion.

It begins with a free two-weeks

Try the free two-week download of Aces High. A full two-weeks. You can play 24/7 for a solid two weeks, for free, and if you can find a better deal than that, you should . . . oh, never mind, it’s impossible to find a better deal than full access to a leading World War 2 flight simulator for two weeks.

No credit card is required or asked for during those two weeks. You are under no obligation. You simply download our flight sim game and start playing.

Free – full access – for a full two weeks!

Monthly cost

When your two-week trial period is over, we ask you to sign up for $14.95 per month. You can sign up for one month. You can sign up for six months, or for as long as you want. Is $14.95 a large amount for a combat simulator, a leader in the field? We don’t believe so. We know it is a competitive price for one of the most trusted games on the market for the last twenty years. We know we offer a dedicated staff, and a team of volunteers, to help you get the most out of Aces High. We know our graphics are second to none, and our dedication to replicating the aircraft, ships, and ground vehicles of World War 2 is second to none.

$14.95 is what you’ll pay for two Big Mac meals. Those would be eaten in fifteen minutes and then the value is gone. Our $14.95 gives value over and over and over again during a month.

$14.95 is what you’ll pay for one ticket to a movie theater, two hours of entertainment. Our $14.95 is for an entire month of entertainment. Sorry, our deal does not come with popcorn.

Bottom line: this is a great deal for the best World War Two flight simulator, a leader of flight sim games.

Per play cost

Do the math to discover the true value of Aces High. If you played once per day, thirty times per month, our game would cost you fifty cents every time you logged on.

A half-buck to play a game? That’s like the old days or playing arcade games, stick in a couple quarters, play a rousing game of pinball, except those pinball games had a limited time, whereas with Aces High, your playing sessions will last as long as you want.

But that really doesn’t tell the true value of Aces High. What if each playing session in the previous example lasted one hour. We are talking about an entire hour of flight sim entertainment for a cost of a half-buck! If you can find a better deal than that, we strongly suggest you gobble it up as quickly as possible.

Final conclusion about Aces High

A leader among flight sim games for twenty years! That should tell you all you need to know about Aces High. Games come and games go, but Aces High has remained, improved, and continues to lead among combat simulators.
