Interceptor Ace: Daylight Air Defense Over Germany, 1943-44 is a solitaire, tactical level game which places you in command of a German fighter during World War II.

Interceptor Ace is a solitaire, tactical level game placing you in command of a German interceptor aircraft during the second half of the Second World War. Your daytime mission is to destroy as many enemy bombers and fighter aircraft as possible, while advancing your crew quality and increasing your personal rank and awards—all while remembering you have to make it home amidst diminishing odds of survival as the war progresses. As time passes and players rack up kills, they may use the experience gained to improve their odds of success by purchasing skills. As their prestige increases, they may request transfer to other bases in an attempt to get “closer to the action” and/or request a newer type of interceptor. Awards and ace status help to narrate the player’s eventual storied career—to survive the war and become one of the top bomber-killer aces of the war.

Players will find it extremely challenging to survive an entire tour from March 1943 to February 1944, at which time the game ends. You will start with one of the aircraft available to the Luftwaffe at the start of the game, but as your fame and prestige rise, more advanced interceptors will be available to choose from.
