Good Old Games Adds Classic Flight Sim 'Apache Longbow'

GOG.com has signed a digital distribution agreement with iEntertainment Network, expanding its catalog with classics like Apache Longbow, priced at $5.99, both Win7/Vista compatible, and DRM free.

Founded by MicroProse Software co-founder JW “Wild Bill” Stealey, Lt. Colonel, USAF (Retired), iEntertainment has created a number of hit simulations that let PC gamers experience the excitement, challenge, and complexity of military combat operations.

Apache Longbow, initially developed by Digital Integration and released in 1995, was an impressively realistic take on flying the most deadly helicopter ever designed at the time. Featuring a “realistic” mode, real enough that the developers had actual Apache helicopter pilots test-flying the for accurate flight modeling, Apache Longbow also had a simplified “Arcade” mode for gamers who just wanted to have fun blasting away at targets without completing the comprehensive training missions. Apache Longbow features three different theaters of war in addition to the training grounds

Apache Longbow is available now on GOG.com for just $5.99, and is just the first game from iEntertainment Network Inc. that will be showing up on GOG.com in the future. Fans of simulations should stay tuned as the digital distribution outlet ads more titles from the American developer.
