Amiga - 1990
Description of Wings
Wings is not the old unreleased (though widely traded) Amiga WWI-flight simulator by Cinemaware: it's yet another of those Finnish games about flying little (usually v-shaped) ships around in a cave, properly armed for a violent contest of skill... in the best Sopwith tradition.
Essentially, Wings is a multiplayer match-up, though you can play alone, rescuing your troopers and then returning to a landing pad. It's rather boring, though, compared to fighting your friends, which on the other hand is tremendously entertaining. The package includes: A nice variety of weapons, including the ingenious, legendary Harpoon. Selection of different ships - though not that different. Up to eight players simultaneously, four human on one PC - with a serial cable or modem play available, as well as an okay AI. Uncompromised playability, with properly customisable options to suit your ship-blasting needs. Lots of good levels, and a converter to create your own out of bitmaps.
Presentation has given away to playability, graphics are not bad but rather functional. SFX department neither impressess nor fails. Music's mostly sub-average (with a few decent tunes), but the fact you can stuff the MUSIC directory with your favourite .MODs and .S3Ms makes up for it.

one of the games that defined gaming in 90s and amiga. as a great blend of action and simulation, the purpose of the game is sheer fun. cinemaware was truly expert on that. today's gaming industry seems like beginning to re-discover what a game should mean.
