Spitfire Ace is a combat flight simulator video game created and published by then-newly formed MicroProse. It was one of the first video games designed and programmed by Sid Meier. It was originally developed for Atari 8-bit family (1982) and ported to the Commodore 64 (1984) and PC (as a booter, 1984). The PC port was by R. Donald Awalt. The Commodore 64 version was ported by Dale Gray and Ron Verovsky.
The game puts the player in the pilot's seat during World War II. The player defends London during The Blitz while flying the Supermarine Spitfire. The game offers 15 different scenarios that include France, Malta and D-Day.
