You know, I saw this and actually thought of you, glad you're happy!

Didn't realise some of these weren't out worldwide; I'll get the info done asap.

Okay after playing a while here's my feedback.

Bad -

The virtual stick is really in a bad place for me, makes it very hard to control and it's not movable.

There seems to be no options screen to change button config, using an icade 8-bitty it places the fire button in the worst possible place Ughh.

Good -

ITS WINGS!!!!
It's just as much fun as it ever was
It's the best 69p you'll spend this year
With an icade or other controller its simply wonderful indeed!
I can pretend to be one of my heroes now: Mick Mannock, Albert Ball, James McCudden ....Ahh bliss

If they can give us an update so we can alter the button config and move/scale the virtual stick, it'll be pure heaven

I never played this, but it looks cool. That's why I love iOS gaming so much. I get to play all these games I missed out on years ago......and for a fraction of the price!

I thought they were making an enhanced remake version of this?
There is a demo version for it on android, but I've seen no new updates on their site for ages.

And they released it after so much time? what took them so long?
There are much better games that are on Amiga, of course sadly not from them. I would rather see SSI games or perhaps Black Crypt from EA than this.

They did make a remake and it's quite poor. Sure it looks great with the updated graphics but the game itself is a pale shadow of the original. You can down the aircraft in one tiny burst of fire, there's no challenge to it.

Go wash your mouth out Wings is one of the best Miggy games ever. I agree SSI games are great but Wings is awesome both for the gameplay and the picture it paints of the Great War.
