Interceptor Ace: Daylight Air Defense Over Germany (1943-44) is a Solitaire, Tactical Level Game which places you in command of a German Fighter during World War II. Each turn consists of several days, during which a Combat Mission will be flown from one of many Bases in Europe, attempting to intercept incoming American Bombers. Interceptor Ace is based on the popular Action-packed Nightfighter Ace Game System by Gregory M.Smith with a strong narrative around the Pilot as you look to increase your prestige, earn skills and rise in Rank through promotion and receive awards.
The Objective of the Game is to conduct numerous sorties in the Role of a German Interceptor Pilot and rack up kills. Pilots may use the experience gained to improve their odds of success by purchasing skills. As their prestige increases, they may request a transfer to other Fighter Bases in an attempt to get closer to the action or request a newer type of Fighter. Awards and Ace Status help to narrate the player's eventual goal to become the top Viermot killer of the War.
