    I can't seem to find any WWI flying games for Mac
    I was looking for something along the line of a Red Baron
    There are a few on-line game but they pre-suppose that you always have access to wifi. I could run a windows emulator which sort of defeats the purpose of having a mac.
    Does anyone know of one that works on Mavericks?

    Wings remake

    The gameplay probably isn't as involved as Red Baron (from what I remember, only played it a couple times), but I always loved Cinemaware's Wings on my Amiga. And now it's coming back, successfully funded!

    A Mac version is currently a stretch goal, hopefully they get there. :)

    I wish they'd remake Aces Over Europe. That's the only flying game I ever really got into. It wasn't WWI, but I had to drop a nostalgia bomb here.

    I know you want a OS X game but you should look at Rise of Flight and load up bootcamp to play it. I don't think it needs an internet connection for solo play.

    Besides it doesn't defeat the purpose of having a Mac since the switch to Intel your Mac can run Windows natively. You get even more use out of your hardware!

    Thanks

    I downloaded the game store. I'm not total lazy.
    I did searched the apple aps store without success.
    I'm reading some WWI aviation history
    and the maneuvers make more sense if you try executing them yourself.
    (Except for the going down in flames part)

    Where did you get $99 from? Its $29.95?!

    You can always have a look a Boxer I have Knights of the Sky installed. I used to play that on my Atari STe back in the 90's. Get the Boxer app then go to MyAbandonware for free DOS games.

    This

    My local Target gets this in regularly, I'm always tempted to buy it, but always think, Nahh, too many other games...

    The Amazon page says PC only, but the box in the picture, and what I see at Target regularly, clearly says it can be used on the Mac. YMMV, however.

    Online, Mac compatible, it says play for free, but I imagine it has a free and premium subscription: TotalSims.com

    Years ago, I played Warbirds (online) and it was a blast! :)
