Classic Atari flight sims are coming back on Steam

F-15 Strike Eagle Flight Sims Steam

Flight simulators have come a long way since the first ones came out almost forty years ago. For example, Microsoft’s newer Flight Simulator uses Google Earth’s technology to pretty much let us fly anywhere in the world. But back in the day, we had to learn to fly those virtual planes in a smaller map. Five of those classic flight sims are coming back to PC on Steam.

  • Solo Flight (1983)
  • F-15 Strike Eagle (1985)
  • Harrier Jump Jet (1992)
  • Dog Fight: 80 Years of Aerial Warfare (1993)
  • The Ancient Art of War in the Skies (1992)

The games are already available at Steam, you can purchase them either individually or on several bundles.
