Aces High provides endless entertainment

Tough times we are experiencing . . . no doubt about it, the worst this economy has been in since the 1930’s. So many people are home; so many children cannot go to school. It’s been six months now, and that means a whole lot of people are stir-crazy and looking for something to do other than streaming Netflix.

The movie theaters are closed. The theme parks in your local area are closed. Waterparks are closed. And if you watch one more episode of “Breaking Bad” you will go crazy.

May we suggest Aces High, the combat simulator with attitude, the absolute best World War 2 flight simulator on the market?

Why Aces High?

We can give you three solid reasons for playing Aces High, three reasons which no one can dispute: cost, availability, and challenge.


Right up front, Aces High will cost you $14.95 per month for unlimited access. Way cheaper than cable. Actually cheaper than a newspaper subscription. Heck, if you could go to a movie theater, $14.95 would barely get you through the front door . . . once!

Break it down! Let’s say you place Aces High one hour per day. We don’t think it’s possible to just play Aces High one hour per day, but let’s just suppose you could do it. One hour per day for thirty days is thirty hours, right? Divide thirty hours into $14.95 and you come up with great flight simulator entertainment for fifty cents per hour.

You can’t find that kind of value anywhere in the entertainment industry.

Play two hours per day, which is closer to the national average among MMO gamers, and you find you are playing for twenty-five cents per hour.

Go ahead, try to find a better deal in entertainment.

On top of that great value, we give you the first two weeks free with a free two week download of Aces High.


Aces High is available 24/7, 365 days per year, around the clock, always active, always a battle going on, always MMO players somewhere in the world looking for some action with you. Are you a night owl? Aces High is for you. Do you rise real early in the morning? Aces High is for you? Insomnia? Out of work? Looking for a new challenge? Aces High is for you!


Aces High has been available since 2000. For twenty years we have been entertaining, and challenging, the best flight sim players in the world. We have been tinkering and tinkering and tinkering with Aces High in an attempt to make it the very best flight sim game on the market, and by golly we think we’ve achieved that goal.

But we won’t really be the ultimate challenge among flight sim games without you.

Aces High places you in the middle of the action

Prior to the year 2000, all you could do, if you were interested in World War 2, was read about it or watch movies and/or newsreels of it. But in the year 2000, HiTech Creations introduced the exciting World War 2 flight simulator Aces High, a combat simulator so real that players felt like they were actually flying aircraft during World War 2. The graphics were so mindblowing that MMO players felt like they were planning battles, taking part in battles, and actually affecting the outcome of the road.

It was a revolutionary moment in flight sim gaming.

And the good news – Aces High still leads the way in flight sim games, twenty years later.
