F-15 Strike Eagle and The Ancient Art of War in the Skies on Steam

Atari announces the re-launch of five classic flight simulators on Steam. The first two are now online as Windows editions of The Ancient Art of War in the Skies and Sid Meier's F-15 Strike Eagle. The other three games will come next week, so fans of classic aerial combat games can expect Solo Flight, Harrier Jump Jet, and Dog Fight: 80 Years of Aerial Warfare to pop up on the radar soon. Here's a refresher on the first two games:
In Meier’s F-15 Strike Eagle, players choose their desired mission and then find themselves inside of the sophisticated cockpit of an F-15 fighter jet, fully armed for combat and heading into enemy airspace. Named “Action Game of the Year” by Computer Gaming World in 1985, the game is based on real-life missions carried out by fighter pilots in the 1970s and ‘80s. Meier collaborated with Air Force Pilot Bill Stealy to ensure F-15 Strike Eagle’s accuracy, which includes missions in Libya, Egypt, Iran, and more.

The Ancient Art of War in the Skies was a unique pick in the genre, marrying map-based tactical war simulation with arcade-style aerial combat. The Ancient Art of War in the Skies delivers hours of compelling playtime with dozens of scenarios and missions.
