Wings! Remastered Edition touring prettier skies in 2014

Cinemaware's World War 1 bomber is circling over PC, Mac, iOS and Android for a second round as Wings! Remastered Edition. The update will retain the top-down gameplay from Wings!'s 1990 debut on the Amiga, but HD polish, new sound effects and a redone soundtrack will help freshen up the experience. A press release notes pilots will join the 56th Squadron for "over 230 diverse missions taking place between 1916 and 1918." Surely most of those conflicts will be resolved with subdued diplomacy ...

Wings was meant to be revisited via Kickstarter in 2012, but Cinemaware's campaign for Wings: Director's Cut only managed to gather a sixth of its $350,000 funding goal.
