I see they ported the old macintosh game Bomber 3 over to a new engine for some true vintage gaming goodness.

One is about The Mighty 8th and the other is about The Bloody 100th - apart from that I don't know. I just got an email about MPs new products.

I mean what's the difference in gameplay. (And the Bloody 100th was a bomber group in the Eighth Air Force.)

It looks like the bloody 100 game has missions implemented that closely follow or simulate their particular missions from history

Either way I’m quite moist  about this

So same gameplay, just a more tailored set of missions?

As far as I can tell - sounds like something that should be dlc or an extra option for the base game but yeah

I’d be very interested in vanilla mighty eight

It seems just yesterday that Microprose's B-17 sim got it's first remake...


1992

2000

I just noticed that the 1992 game had Roland MIDI support. I wonder how the music would sound through an MT-32 or SC-55 Sound Canvas...  :dreamer:
