Description Edit | History

Back of Box

Your S.P.A.D.'S wings shudder against the force of the turn as you twist and dodge out of the Fokker's sights. A steep bank slams you against the cockpit edge, but suddenly the Fokker is hanging in front of your guns and your tracers are spitting holes across its wings. You didn't become an ace by falling into traps, and neither will your opponent.

DAWN PATROL Computer Game places you in the cockpit of any one of 12 Allied or German planes from World War I. Each plane is programmed to respond to its controls the way the real plane did. You must manipulate ailerons, rudder, elevators and throttle to outfly and outfight up to five enemy planes at once. Three-dimensional perspective views in five directions give you the feel of real seat-of-the-pants flying. Can you face the challenge of real-time dog-fighting? Only the aces will know.

  • For use with the APPLE II or APPLE II+ with DOS 3.3 and 48K
  • Real-time simulation and animated Hi-Res graphics
  • For one player

User Summary

Programmed by Keith Enge.

Although the name coincides with TSR's World War I air-combat role-playing game Dawn Patrol (which itself was adapted from the board game Fight in the Skies), the Dawn Patrol computer game is not a direct adaptation of the RPG. The only apparent relationship is that the games share a common name and theme.

Dawn Patrol is a single-player real-time 3D flight simulation game that uses wire-frame style graphics to display opposing aircraft and terrain. The game puts you into a cockpit with a simplified instrument panel. Your main instruments are an altimeter, compass, and airspeed indicator.

The game features 12 flyable aircraft, consisting of a mix of German, British and French planes that were involved in the war during the 1916-1918 time frame. These include flight simulator favorites such as the Fokker Triplane, Sopwith Camel, Fokker D.VII, and S.E. 5. The player sets up the scenario for a flight by choosing which aircraft to fight against and the number of enemy aircraft that will appear at one time. You can choose to fight up to five aircraft at the same time, but the game limits you to just one or two types of opposing aircraft from the game's library of 12 planes.
