iEntertainment, the studio founded by MicroProse Software co-founder “Wild Bill” Stealey, has signed on with Good Old Games. The announcement also brings with it a new title for the download service: Apache Longbow. Gamers can snatch up a DRM-free digital copy of the well-received sim for $5.99.
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.
