Dogfight is a video game of the combat flight simulation genre released in 1993 by MicroProse. As the subtitle 80 years of Aerial Warfare suggests, the game featured simulation of aerial combat starting from World War I biplanes, right through to modern fighter jets.

In the USA, the game was released with the title Air Duel: 80 Years of Dogfighting.

Reception[edit]

Computer Gaming World in 1993 criticized Air Duel's framerate, "generic and unrealistic" avionics, lack of CCIP, buggy AI, and low replay value. The magazine stated that it would have been better received in 1991, concluding that "Air Duel isn't bad, but it certainly isn't new or better."[1]
