Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol for iOS

Fun and intriguing air combat title, programmed by Sid Meier himself, and available to download for free from the App Store. It's in the same vein as the currently popular free-to-play game War Thunder, featuring historical WWI aircraft and dogfights in a turn-based strategy sim that'll have you trying to outsmart enemy AI for air dominance. A demonstration of the game, as played by Touch Arcade, shows off the game's mechanics and various IAP options for unlocking skins and additional pilots.

Polygon also has a short interview with Firaxis' associate producer Pete Murray, who explains why the studio pursued the WWI theme amongst other titles like XCOM and Civilization.
