Love the subject matter, loathe the linearity and arcade-ry.  Just preference I suppose, but is there not a lot of nostalgia involved with the excitement?

I've still got two PC sims and at least three boardgames on the subject matter which I've not exhausted yet.

It's totally linear and totally arcadey. It's also totally atmospheric and beautiful. Those two reasons are why I still love it.

Rising from the dead. I pledged 125.00 to bring Wings back to life. It was definitely not worth 125.00 but it was fun for a few days. Nothing beyond the game was delivered, btw.

But my real reason for bringing this back from the dead is that I need a new link to my 125.00 download and cannot get an answer from Cinemaware. It appears they aren't answering anyone lately. If anyone has any suggestions as to how I can legally re-download, let me know.

Here's the Kickstarter link with a lot of unhappy comments on it:

Gus - you don't have it through Steam? That's where I got my copy. I suppose KS didn't do it through Steam...

Well it sounds positive for the KS backers... I saw it on sale at Gamersgate, but ummed and ahhed about it, don't know why really as it was dead cheap. I take it that they game is a lot of fun?

If you like highly repetitive arcade action retro games, then yeah, it's great fun. :)

I bought it on Steam for dirt cheap during one sale (probably five dollars or less) and played it for a total of 101 minutes (according to Steam). It was pretty enjoyable but for me I'd only be able to deal with it in short spurts, since it IS so repetitive.

I should have just bought it on Steam but nostalgia got the better of me. Out of principle I don't want to drop another 15.00 to get a working copy, know what I mean?

^^Probably not for me then. Anyway, I have a ton of games to be getting on with, plus a few that need write-ups! ;D

This one was a notorious screw up. Others I have done, less so. Still...😓
