The SNES Podcast #60 — Wings 2: Aces High

In this episode Greg and George look at a early SNES game you probably never played, much less heard off — a ‘sequel’ to the classic Amiga game Wings by Cinemaware (which has a remake available on GOG, Steam, and Mobile and is very good!). We say ‘sequel’ cause this game wasn’t really designed to follow up on Wings, but shares some of the mission layout, gameplay, and tactics of the original game. But is it worth playing? Join us as we discuss this and give the game the usual coverage. Any feedback, questions, comments, etc. can be left on our FB page or e-mailed to thesnespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!
