|Buzz Aldrin's Race into Space||Released in 1992, Buzz Aldrin's Race into Space attempted to answer that pressing which dominated parts of the 1960's world - "... for two years the Russians have been working on a larger, more powerful rocket. Could they be secretly planning a mission this year to land men on the moon? Will they get there first? "
I couldn't get the sim running under Windows, However there is now good news for those who want to refly the Cold War Space Race. Go to www.geocities.com/raceintospace and find out where to download the original floppy version of this sim and all the tips you will need on how to get it running, and then how to succeed in the "Race to Space".

|Yager||Flying through Yager is like diving into a Jack Vance novel with it's quaint mixture of old and new, the fantastic architecture, the floating ore barges - all fully animated - and the not-quite-earthly watery environs, all seasoned with a quirky sense of humour.
Those who remember Strike Commander with affection will appreciate the storyline and the clever mission construction. This type of game has the potential to get people interested in flight sims - but in it's own right it's a fun filled experience. Don't take it too seriously - just have a blast !
The drop - dead gorgeous graphics are shown off in the videos I have created for the Museum exhibit and given the strong role playing element, this is a good sim to recommend as it might encourage new players to look further into flight simulation generally.
