JASTA! is a game recreating the aerial battles over the trenches of the First World War in the Summer of 1917. You play the role of the commanding officer of a flight of aircraft, either an Allied squadron or a German Jasta. You are given a mission, set off with your chums, and By Jingo before you know it become embroiled in a dogfight, get shot at by Ack-Ack fire from the ground wallahs, and get to strafe them back or blow up a balloon or two for good measure!

Who knows you could end up a famous ace like the Baron von Richtofen…<o:p></o:p>
