WWII History

If you are a gamer, and you’ve been in the gaming world for any time at all, you certainly know about Aces High flight sim game. Aces High, the creation of HiTech Creations, has been on the market now for twenty-two years, so there are several generations of gamers who are very aware of Aces High.

What they may not be aware of, however, is the unique philosophy behind the making of Aces High, and that philosophy comes from the top of the company chain at HiTech Creations.

At the top

At the top of HiTech Creations, since Day One, in 1999, is Dale Addink. When Dale started HiTech Creations, he started it with one goal and one goal only: to make one game, just one, and to make it the best combat simulator on the market. He had no desire to make multiple games. In fact, he had no desire to own a multi-game corporation which could take on Microsoft and some of the other gaming giants. He simply wanted a small company, comprised of motivated employees, a company with a singular purpose: to be the best at what they make!

Unique in the world of business

Think about it for a moment and you will be amazed by this unique approach. Most corporations we know of, and we would guess that you know of, want to be the largest possible corporation. They want increased profits, and they want to climb the charts of NASDAQ. But not Dale and his group at HiTech Creations. All they wanted to do . . . all they want to do . . . is to make one World War Two flight simulator, and to make it better than anyone else in the crowded flight simulator gaming field.

The advantage of this approach

Without a doubt, this approach means fewer dollars in the bank for HiTech Creations. Certainly, in the twenty-two years of their existence, they could have made more money producing multiple games. It just stands to reason that that is true. But they wanted to focus all of their attention on one game, Aces High, the leading combat simulator on the market, and because they focus their considerable talents on that goal, they in fact can achieve that goal.

The advantage for players

And it is the players who reap the rewards of that corporate approach and philosophy. When you sit down to play Aces High, you are playing a game which is the result of the best gaming minds in the industry, all with a singular purpose, all dedicated to making your gaming experience the absolute best it can be.

And that means one heck of a gaming experience for you, the players!

We get this question asked of us all the time: How old should a child be before they play our highly-rated combat simulator?

Yes, Aces High is a combat flight sim game, but it is not a graphic combat simulator. We show no blood or guts. There are explosions and that pretty much sums up the amount of violence a player witnesses. Rather, it is a strategy game, one where you test your skills against other players, and as such it requires a certain level of maturity and a certain level of gaming skills.

We think maybe eight or nine is a good age to begin playing Aces High but, please note, we consider that a purely arbitrary guess on our part.

For the uninitiated, a flight simulator can be either a machine which simulates actually flying an aircraft, oftentimes used to teach people how to be pilots, but it is also a term used to refer to a particular genre of games called flight simulator games, or flight sim games. It is the latter definition we will be referring to today.

Any article about how to play a flight simulator must come with this warning: all flight simulators are different, and all come with their own specific set of operation instructions. Thus, any article attempting to teach players how to play a flight simulator, is bound to come up a bit short in results. Still, there are certain things any novice player can do to make the learning curve a bit flatter.

Here, then, are our suggestions, based on our own Aces High game, on how to play a flight simulator, otherwise known as a flight sim game, a combat simulator, or sometimes a World War 2 flight simulator, the most common combat simulators sold.

Read articles

On our Aces High website, one can find, literally, hundreds of articles referring to our game, how to play it, and how to become a better player. These articles are timeless. Reading an article written ten years ago will have relevance today because the basic core of our game has not changed.

Set aside a half-hour daily, read some article, absorb the information. It will serve you well in the future.

Watch training videos

If you are a player who learns by watching, otherwise known as a visual learner, we offer, again, hundreds of training videos which will teach you every aspect of playing Aces High. The videos are listed according to various skills, so it is easy to find a video which will teach you a specific skill.

Who doesn’t love videos? Grab some popcorn and watch a couple.

Learn on forums

We have forums for everything related to gaming. We have a very active population of players lurking in the shadows of the forums. Log on, go to forums, and ask your question. Within minutes you will have specific instructions from some of the best gamers in the world. And, if that’s not enough, you can request a one-on-one training session with staff or volunteers.

Dive in and start playing

Our personal favorite for anyone wanting to learn how to play a flight simulator is to simply dive in and learn on the fly. Yes, you will have some tough times early on. Yes, you will get shot out of the sky on a regular basis during those first few sessions, but our game is easy enough to learn so you will soon be a formidable foe, flying the World War 2 skies, taking part in missions and holding your own.

Our best estimate on how long it takes to learn how to play a flight simulator like Aces High? It depends on how much time you devote to practicing, but we believe, within a week, two at the most, you will be able to play against some very seasoned players.
